Turnoff from Condie Rd (RR 2205) to West (twp 184) heading to Brown's Slough:
a brown weasel passed right in front of me, running across the road! About 3x the length of a squirrel and extremely small/skinny/very long tail. I checked images online and yep - that was it.

Northern Harrier crusin' around the NW side
Coots & young
Ruddy Ducks and ducklettes :)
The young were bobbin' around and along came a Coot, the little Ruddy took off, beak open, and the 2nd got a peck on the back for hanging around! Video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xI9TXbwXauo
