Critters from the NCR trail

I saved some of my NCR critter photos for Camera Critters

During our walk on the NCR trail we stopped and watched this Great blue Heron, the chickens are from a nearby house. They seem to roam free around the trail. We also shared the trail with some locals riding their horses on the trail. And of course Goldie Girl got to go on the walk with us.






Goldie Girl always seems to get her leash wrapped around her paws, we stopped to check out the stream and fix her leash. The stream is always a good place to see a Kingfisher.


A group of the chickens taking a walk on the trail. Goldie Girl is not so sure what to make of these chickens. But, they did not see to mind Goldie Girl or having us nearby.


We stepped aside to let the horseback riders go by, Goldie Girl likes to see these big critters go by.

I hope you enjoyed my critter post and to see more wonderful critters please visit Misty Dawn's Camera Critters.  Thanks to Misty for hosting and thanks for stopping by to see my post. Happy Weekend!

A beautiful Critter collection! At least the riders are civilized. I had a quite scary encounter while in Germany. We laughed afterward, but it could have gone very wrong.

It sounds like an interesting walk with birds, chickens, horses and a dog all mixed in together. The photo with the horses moving off down the path is especially good.

A wonderful collection of critters on the trail! I'm with Goldie Girl, I'd be pretty surprised to see those chickens on the trail. Funny how at home they are! I guess it IS their backyard.
