Macroinvertebrates were not the only animals that were observed. Students also noted muskrat lodges, sunning turtles, Canada Geese, and Red-winged Blackbirds. Several very observant students discovered a few surprises like this well-camouflaged Green Frog.

Even more well-hidden was a Red-Winged Blackbird nest, nestled in among the cattails.

Tucked down in the bottom of the nest was a single pale blue egg, mottled with dark spots.
