The weather was nice today and I was feeling cooped up, so I went for a walk at Joe Pool Lake. I tried to get my daugher to go with me, but she declined. So I went alone. I guess it is safe enough and I never stop to worry about it being unsafe, even though I was alone and some parts of the park are a bit isolated. The mallards and coots walked up to me hoping for a handout, but, alas, I left the bread at home.
I saw a killdeer feeding in the mud--first one I've seen up close and personal for a while. I remember hearing them all the time in the fields in Michigan. (This is not my photo--my camera isn't that good!)
