About 5 minutes into my ride, I spotted something on the trail already, and I was quite happy about it!
I got him off the path and he wasn't too happy. He kept his manners though.
A couple miles later, I had another pleasant surprise.
Canadian Geese and Goslings
Aren't they adorable?
I finally got a Great Blue Heron to stand still for me. Like owls, I notice that they aren't as threatened when on a bike, rather than on foot. I'm not sure why, but it just seems that way.

A couple of Canadians wandered through while taking photos.
Finally, I got back to the truck! I loaded the bike and took off down the road, and one final surprise revealed itself!
Trying to impress!
What a great ride. I have found that biking really relieves my stress. I just forget about everything when I'm on my bike cruising down the canal. Seeing the wildlife is just a bonus. Enjoy the rest of the weekend everyone!
