This morning I met up with Miles Hearn’s nature walk group just down the street at Sam Smith Park. We’re so fortunate to live a short walk from such a fantastic place.
Today the footbridge at the west end of the park was closed as the cranes are here, removing the sailboats from the water for winter.
Lake waters continue to be low. In fact, the entire north half of the pond is dry.
We saw a Merlin today, a small hawk about the size of a pigeon.
