On two floating platforms on Silver Lake in Brackney, PA, Springtime brings ducks and turtles looking for a place of rest. In this video, we see a family of Mallard ducks that we saw earlier in the Spring. The video clips from motion-activated cameras over a two week period, show how quickly the ducklings are growing up, learning to preen their first set of feathers..
A Snapping turtle and some Eastern Painted turtles pull up to sun on the hay.
The first green frog on the platform this season looks a little wary of the painted turtle nearby.
Hope you enjoy the video of our local wildlife.
Be watchful of turtles crossing the road, looking for a good nesting area. Carefully help them cross in the same direction they were headed.
