If you follow my blog, you know that I have moved. Read about that HERE
And, as a friend said to me recently (in a mocking way)
'I can tell you can hardly stand to live there!!"
Guess I have been pretty free with my excitement and joy. Sorry about boring you to death with that. Well, no, maybe I am not sorry. Friends just do that... listen when they don't want to, Right?
One of the joys I have every single day is being able to sit on my balcony and look out over the lake (it's small but still a lake). Lately I've been watching a mother duck and her four little ducklings.
Usually they are so far away so that I have to use my zoom lens to it's fullest intent. But, yesterday mama and the babies were at waters edge on my end of the lake. I finally could see the detail of feathering and coloration.
I ran to get my bird book. She's a blue-winged teal!
A hawk has been eyeing the babies.. I hope he doesn't catch one of them.
And where, might I add, are the geese that usually frequent that lake?
I haven't seen them since the duck family took up residence. I hope they come back. I will keep you posted, that's for sure.
