  1. The mallards were swimming in the river near me on Sunday, the warmest day in weeks. I wonder where they are now, when the temperature has once again dipped below freezing.

  2. This is a beautiful picture. We get Sandhill Cranes in eastern Washington state each spring. It’s such a treat because there aren’t usually big beautiful birds like this around here. Thanks for sharing!

    • Yes, I was fortunate to see this bird. It was taken in Indiana where large birds are a rare treat. I’m in Florida now and they’re a dime a dozen. The day I moved in my apt there was a large white crane looking in my window. I’m still amazed at their beauty. thanks for visiting, Ana

Been there? Done that? Wanna go there? Tell me about it!
