I saw several animals during my run. I saw an adult Rock Chuck and three babies. The babies are pretty big and are about 1/3 the size of the adult. They were a darkish gray, while the adult was the typical brownish color. I also saw a Rock Chuck in a field about 100 yards away.
I saw another Red Wing blackbird in the rushes next to the river, and I saw a Pelican fly past. I commented to a woman on a bike who had been watching the Rock Chucks that I could stay there all day and watch the animals. Of course there were, as always, lots of sparrows and robins.
