Water loving birds at an urban park!
Nature always struggles to find a way and for many species of birds that need water as part of their habitat this park has become their oasis.

Rose Oaks County Park: A walk on the wild side.
THE LONE WOLVERINE: Michigan's Most Elusive Animal
For five more years he followed her movements recording much on trail camera in what has been called a love affair between Ford and that lone wolverine; a shadowy ghostly predator of Michigan's past, the first wolverine to be documented in Michigan in over 100 years.
3. The Lone Wolverine is a great gift for anyone that loves wildlife and nature's way!
For a look at the actual wolverine visit the Bay City State Recreation Area. An interpretive display has been created around the mounted remains of the lone wolverine of Michigan.
Or is it?

THE APRIL FOOL'S DAY RABBIT!
I posted the photo of the rabbit with her "eggs" and the caption above to my Facebook site on April Fool's Day morning. Three days later I had over 40 comments and close to 60 'likes' and numerous 'shares' of the photo.
I am not a terribly tech-savvy person but have discovered Facebook is a good way to promote my newspaper column, this blog and sometimes political or wildlife related causes that I am passionate about. But nothing I have posted in the past 4 years has drawn as much attention as the photo above. I'm not sure what to make of that. I did have fun putting two chicken eggs in that small pile of straw near where the wild rabbit sometimes suns on the south side of my house. And the apples drew her in for the photo. And then on April Fools morning I thought, Why not?
What surprises me is that a half dozen people wrote me directly asking if rabbits really lay eggs and others made some posts saying they checked they googled or asked others to see if rabbits really lay eggs before they finally figured out it was a joke.
Perhaps it's time that we all pay a bit more attention to science education.
(I'll be back with some other wildlife fantasy next April Fool's Day)
