I was lucky enough yesterday to spot the movement of a larger bird on the edge of the marsh as I was driving down the 7th Line. My brain slowly connected realizing this was something unusual, and I braked to a stop, then backed up 100 yards. It was an American Bittern! Though it may have been the movement of the two ducks that I spotted.
Unbeknownst to the readers of this blog, I've been teaching an on-line university course this semester, just for fun. It's on the Landscape of Scotland. Anyway, I need to take a few days off to wrap up a large pile of marking. Be back next week sometime.
