This is the local park where all the dog-walkers come. It's not an official dog park, but the people let their dogs run loose, and the dogs come and bark viciously at anyone else (any "strangers.") The dog walkers then say, "oh, he won't hurt you," but he nips at you and growls meanly. I like dogs--but I prefer friendly ones. And I'd like to be able to use the park unthreatened. It's very close to where I live.
On the far left, you can see a few houses. The park is not very wide at this point. I am standing at one edge and you can see where it ends on the other side. However, it is fairly long for a small urban park.
Winter is hard on animals and birds. This is a dead downy woodpecker. I don't know what killed it, but it probably wasn't a predator, or it would have been eaten.
