Well, it's official, our doves have taken up residence in the hanging planter. I don't know how many eggs are in the nest - one for sure - but June and Ward Cleaver are doing their 24/7 nest sitting. This is a view of the nest/planter from our sidewalk. I went to the Brick Ponds Wetland at 7:30 this morning and, in the still of the morning, saw this lone Canada Goose on the water. Sarah Lulu has a wonderful post about the spiritual aspects of the Wild Goose.
Lots of fish feeding at the surface.
Two families of geese. One pair had 4 very little goslings, the other pair had 2 much larger ones.
And finally, my first photo of a Great Blue Heron for the season. This shot is not very sharp but I don't like to risk getting too close and scaring them away. So gentle and graceful.
