    Hi, thought I'd tell you what some of these birds are. :) (I don't see any rules about bumping, so sorry if do...)

    Trumpeter swans:

    Wood ducks (female being the greyish one):

    Geese are Canada geese, the duck in the foreground is a Ringed Teal, the duck on the far right behind the goose is well, a Mallard, the brown one behind the geese in the centre, it's hard to say... might be a female ringed teal:

    If not a longear, than a dollar sunfish.

    I wonder if they simply collect and display or if they actually culture some of those insects?(the ladybirds, katydids, and velvet ants).

    For the shrubs with berries...try deciduous holly, one in particular is Ilex verticillata (winterberry).
