Midweek Dutch Grab Bag

Here are a few pictures from the last three days that haven’t yet “fit the story”, for “reasons”.

First up is an ever-adorable European robin at the edge of the playing fields at the south end of campus Saturday morning. I rarely catch them on the ground like this.


Next is a shot of the falcon clockface yesterday morning with two falcons on it, for a change, one on the hour hand and one in the six o’clock slot.


Here’s one of a couple ring-necked pheasant cocks strutting their stuff out in the countryside on Sunday morning.


And a grey heron on break in the cemetery at the north end of campus Saturday morning.


Finally, the family of Egyptian geese with four goslings in front of my building on campus, which I first spotted last Wednesday, was still doing just fine yesterday morning and voraciously mowing the lawn.


Here’s a close up of just two of the little wiggle worms.
