It's amazing what all this water everywhere will do! :) I saw three very nice birds today .. two are new to me for the year .. actually, I think they are lifers! That means I've never seen them before.
Coming home from lunch with Rob, I saw this bird in the bush by the pond coming into our subdivision.
and then later, when DS1 and I were leaving to get him to his Biology classe, I saw these ..
And then when I was coming home just a little bit later from a run to Menards and Walmart.
A Sandhill Crane.
These were all in the two ponds that flank the road coming into our subdivision! Isn't that something!?!?
