It was a blustery day - actually thought if I didn't hold on to something, I'd be blown away. Picked up some lunch in town and went to the city park. This is some sort of bog project and I walked around the park to enjoy the sunny afternoon.
And I saw something interesting...
Right there in front of me was this bird with his head held right straight up with beak even higher with striped markings on his chest trying so hard to blend into the reeds he was standing in. But I was only a few feet from him. I tried to talk to him but he wasn't impressed and flew off to another area of the bog.
And I picked up some sweet gum balls which were all over the ground near this picnic table.
