Winged Residents

Our mallard duck visitors were here this spring, as usual.  They arrived a bit early this year, so had to endure a bit of snow, ice, and sleet.

The newest resident is a raptor.  We aren't quite sure what kind he is.  He sat in that tree eyeballing the mallard couple or else some tasty frogs for quite some time.  I've seen it once since then, catching a meal on the forest floor.  The pictures are terrible, so I haven't been able to identify it.
