Wildlife in Unexpected Places

On our trip to the Smokies, we saw lots of turkey, deer, and even bear. We were also surprised to see these:

This tree swallow was an added attraction in one of the old homes at Cable Mill.This duck was showing off her little ones to the patrons of a restaurant we visited in Gatlinburg. We were concerned when she ventured too close to the roadway and seemed oblivious to the traffic. Fortunately, she directed them back to the stream and they remained safe and sound. We wonder how many ducklings she started out with!


  1. The nest looks as if it was built into the wall!phylliso

  2. Oh don't you just love seeing all of God's little creatures, Aleta???? SO precious!!!

    The tree swallow is pretty.
