Today the weather was just absolutely beautiful again - not too hot, hot too humid, sunny, a bit of a breeze, gorgeous. Jack and I decided to start at the pond, and see how much energy he had after that. Maybe the zoo, maybe the lake, whatever.
We looked all over the pond for the wood duck, but didn't see him. I hope I get to see him in his summer costume, but so far he's too shy to let me see him when he's not all decked out. One of the ducks we saw paddling around looked injured, it was only paddling with one foot. The other one it was holding close to its body and not moving. I don't know if ducks sometimes do this when they are not injured, I guess it's possible.
There were a couple of birds that looked little and interesting that might have been migrants coming back through, but they were too flighty for me. Hahahaha, get it, flighty? Aaaaaah, yeah, I crack myself up.
Anyway, I saw a redbelly there and was excited to see it, I haven't seen one in a while. Sadly though the pictures came out crappy.
After that I went to the oven, where I sat for a while and had a wonderful time. Didn't see anything of note, it was just wonderful sitting in the shade and drinking my DK and seeing nature.
There were two water thrushes there, working their way up the stream. I got a pretty good look at them, but the pictures did not come out well. Water thrushes have been a problem picture-wise!
