Ornithological Update for the Day

So, it's been light on egrets here lately - but the geese are in town. There are about two dozen bobbing around out there - and from this distance they look a bit like iddybiddy Loch Ness monsters. The don't do much out there - they aren't half as exciting as the egrets - or as lonely looking as the duck-ish bird (I'm sure it is a duck of somekind, but it isn't a mallard) that's always by itself.

Occasionally the geese change direction and swim this way or that way - but not for any discernable reason. They also seem to have split into Shark and Jet-like constituencies. Not sure what that means, but I'll report back if there's a rumble . . . .
