This pair was under a pile of lumber that had only recently been moved. I guess they are 'migrating' to a new area, taking advantage of a few wet spring days when lots of amphibians move.
Dogwood are in decline here. This one is not too healthy
Canada goose nesting.
Last Spring (2014) Alice and Billy nested and raised 5 goslings on the pond. They returned this spring and stablished a nest on 26 Mar. Five other geese occasionally visit the pond, Billy chases them off. I am guessing these are last year's offspring. This year's nest is in exactly the same spot.
found dead under a window.
I see tracks nearby, ? Raccoon
