We met a couple young girls in kayaks. We shared conversations and they helped us with our observation adding some details for us . They said they spotted turtles,3 heron s ,and a blackbird which later swam in towards us and was fishing (it was a Comorant) It would dive and pop up in another spot or dive and leave its bottom up above water also. Later it flew onto a branch in the water and spread it s wing s in the sun. There was a big Blue dragon fly and a bunch of small black and grey dragon flies. We also saw minnows (cormorant possibly eating them and vegetation) There were small white butterflies (like the cabbage moths in our garden).
