So I went back to the dentist today. It was supposed to storm this afternoon and I wasn't sure I was going to get to the park afterwards, and the new binocs are so heavy, I ended up leaving them at home. But after the dentist it was somewhat okay, so I walked around the pond without binocs - frustrating! I saw the night heron on the far side, and I actually glanced around to see if anyone nearby had binocs. Hahahaha, no, and I'm lucky it was a no, because I might have been tempted to weasel my way into a look! I also saw the wood duck and the goslings, and then went to the zoo. The goslings are very nearly the size of a Mallard now!
After the zoo I came back around the pond to get home, and saw that the wood duck was up on the rock outcropping, so I headed over there just to check it out. On the way was a cluster of random people with cameras, it turns out Paris Hilton was being interviewed right then and there. She was quite shiny. I just kept my face away from the cameras and kept on, but I would have enjoyed a better look at the wood duck.
