Last week I spotted the pileated woodpecker, there is much evidence of activity. They are at the base of the trees. Some naturalists rant about the damage they do, but it's all part of the cycle of life. The trees are still growing!
Daisy and I ventured down to the wetland. The point was pretty wet. This was last week. We went back into a deep freeze, and the 3rd photo shows the ice frozen again. It's good news, as we had a drought last summer.
Where the deer fur remains, Daisy was pretty interested in sniffing.
The bridge to the wetland was not navigable, being so much underwater. Daisy sat on the fallen bush and watched the water go by. There are bubbles, and the water was moving. She was fascinated!
The frog pond has a fair amount of water. This bodes well for spring frogging. I sat on the chair, and watched for a moment, then Daisy got bored. It was well above zero last week. This morning double-digit below zero. The ice is, again, frozen solid.
This was our revisit just a few days later! Frozen solid. The dock, my bridge, and the island.
Daisy sat down for a peek She heard something across the wetland. Turned out to be a deer. She has excellent hearing.
She was reluctant to leave. She sat on that log for a long time.
