hatched into two babies in the last day or two. They will be looked after by their mom for another two to three weeks as they prepare to fend for themselves.

An afternoon with Wild Voices for Kids
Learning about western painted turtles,
What they look like, where they live,
What they eat,
And what we can do to help.

We are warm-blooded mammals.
Our temperature stays much the same
No matter the season.
Being reptiles and cold-blooded
Western painted turtles have learned to adapt
Through the changing seasons
Including winter
When they bury themselves in mud at the bottom of ponds.

We need to think about
What we can do to help protect
Western painted turtles
And to stop them
Becoming extinct.

Even on a wet day, there is always something to see at Elizabeth Lake. The rain probably discouraged garter snakes and turtles from making an appearance, and there were few flying bugs and insects visible. But a muskrat did appear briefly before disappearing into its lodge.

Mr Wilson, I love that baby coot picture. That's the first time I've seen one so maybe I should walk down to the lake more often to take a look.
It's also good to know that the snakes aren't out on rainy days --- Phew
