Continuing with waterfowl: a pair of common mergansers preening on rocks in the creek.
Further down the trail, an eastern wood-pewee was singing its beautiful plaintive song, quite loudly, in fact, from somewhere above. This is a common scenario for woodland birding: you have this small brown bird sitting still somewhere high in the trees, and you just can't seem to find it. But with a thermal imager...

Finally, while walking down this dry creek bed, the high-magnification 35mm lens on my Therm-App showed this clear profile of a resting deer.
