Sunday Morning Walk
After the miserable rainy day yesterday I headed out early this morning. Still overcast with the sun peeking out only now and then but no rain. Arrival at the pond was greeted with an unexpected surprise of three Osprey that were stirring things up. They were flying about, diving toward the pond and fussing with each other. They come about this time each year and will stay around through April then move on to one of the larger lakes in the area.
The drake Woodduck was busy guarding the area around the nestbox. The hen flew in while I was walking across the bridge so hopefully there will be some little woodies this year. The box they nested in last year was invaded and all the eggs destroyed. Very sad when you are hoping they will re-establish themselves at this location.
