Friday, May 8, 2009

High patchy clouds, good sun; little breeze. A few mallards near the south shore; a few more coots. Four loud geese close to the western shore. Bright filmy tendrils of algae cover the rocks all along the shore; many small fish darting about. Very loud woodpecker at work in the marsh to the north; the air filled with bird calls. A great blue heron circles the center of the lake, lands, spreads its wings, takes off, lands again, then flies high. Several mallards exploring the draining creek. White violets carpet a large stretch of ground.
