It’s going to be a very good year for mosquitos! The ditches are full of water and they really stink from all the rotting grass that is supposed to be growing in the summer sun.
It’s also a very good year for ducks! They are all stopping here instead of finishing their journey to Canada. This mudhen is all I could get a photo of tonight, but the Mallards and Teals are plentiful, too. The geese are also enjoying the standing water. We are seeing lots of goslings this year.
Barney is pretending he is a waterfowl dog these days. Unfortunately, he smells like it, too!
