I went for a walk at the river recently and am finally hearing sounds of spring. I could hear the red-winged blackbirds calling out – a sure sign of spring.
I photographed this coot near a pond and I think this is the first time I’ve seen a coot out of the water. I didn’t realize they were so round. :-). The duck was standing on the log trying to decide if it should jump into the cold water. It finally did.
