March Showers!

It seems that the drizzle won’t stop, and the fog won’t clear, but I needed the walk anyway, so I went out with just my phone. Check out this happy sight that I found waiting for me by the pond! Spring is really starting to spring now!

I bumped into a birder new to Estabrook, who reported that it wasn’t foggy in Mukwonago when he left home. Nevertheless, he was thrilled to see all the golden-crowned kinglets we have, and he alerted me to buffleheads, hooded mergansers, and wood ducks down on the river. I did manage to spot the buffleheads, two drakes and a hen, and one hooded merganser drake, but the wood ducks stayed hidden in the fog. Maybe I’ll see them tomorrow, if this rain ever ends.

  1. Are the flowers called snowdrops? So cute and portends that Spring will really arrive – on its own schedule, as usual!
