Traveling on water provides a different perspective from land travel.  Animals need water and since they live without plumbing systems, must go directly to the source.  During the paddling day at this time of year, many new families can be seen.  A parent duck and family will be swimming around together until a threat is detected.  Then the parent will work to attract attention and draw the threat away from the young ones.  Young deer (fawns) will sometimes be less aware due to their age and experience.  Their mother's sometimes put them on islands to minimize the threats during their early life.  Many birds of prey can be seen, especially early and late in the day.  Bald Eagles are numerous.
