Geese hatch in the Park

Despite park management's efforts to keep down the Canada Geese population, four goslins were born recently, the first babies we've seen in a couple of years. This morning I spied a fox skulking nearby, so I checked to see that the new-borns were okay. They were fine and looked to be similarly healthy when I checked again this afternoon.

Visit to Brooklyn

Pam and I were there from Monday, April 5th through Friday, April 9th. The main attraction was our granddaughter, and here is Pam, Honor, and Honor's dad, Sean:

Honor seemed to be interested in her grandfather's toes, and here she is getting ready to bite them while her father and mother, Rebecca, look on:

Sunset following a short fishing trip

After noticing rising fish on some evening walks, I strolled down to the pond recently with a fly rod. Spent about twenty minutes casting a dry fly and caught a small bluegill. I haven't seen many trout caught since the stocking. Took a picture of the setting sun before walking home.

Another Great Blue Heron visit

I like the rippled tree reflections on the surrounding surface.
