We've had slushy snow, in this warm weather. This is March weather, or even April! Even Daisy isn't impressed. She stopped on the path and refused to budge. It's not good for snowshoeing, as the snow is too heavy.
We took a trip. The idea was to find some different birds, and some open water. We found snowmen. Some nice buildings. A little farther south, and southeast, there isn't much snow cover. This does not bode well for spring planting.
The roads were slushy, like fudge. Poor JB, driving! Spotted some more solar farms.
We finally spotted some birds. This was a huge swarm of blackbirds! This is a good sign.
We stopped at a local creek. I wanted to check in on this body water. It is the same body of water that has the river otters. Our ecosystems are amazing. There are some farm geese and ducks there. I wasn't sure if they would be out, but they were! They live on the property at the edge of the creek.
The geese are grey lag geese. The ducks are a domestic breed. The crested duck is a breed of domestic duck. It was probably brought to Europe from the East Indies by Dutch ships.:413
They were ice fishing on Big Rideau, despite the big thaw~
