It takes me awhile to catch up on things. Posts. Comments. Cleaning the house. These are photos from last week at the Ditch! There were new friends and old.
I've seen loads of runners and dog walkers and a couple of photographers. They often have spotted things I've not seen.
Photographer Karen was the one who found this nest.
It is empty now but it was quite the chirp fest on the day we were there.
The robins are out in force. I don't know what it is about my neighborhood that makes it a haven for robins, but I always see dozens between here and the ditch -- enough distance to know they aren't the same one!
I do know there are two herons, though. This Harry was perched on a birdhouse in the middle of the pond for two rounds of Ditch-walking (and who knows, maybe more!)

This little bun had a dilemma. He was trying to cross the pond divide from one walkway to another. It's only about three feet but he was just a little guy.
He went back and forth, trying to figure it out.

It was fun to see the Duckles again. I think there are two families. These little guys were out for a swim.
We'll follow these little guys for a bit. Meanwhile, in the words of Harry or his friend...
