Not much happening around here yet. Seesawing weather gave us an 80 degree day today but it’s just a tease, now it’s back to normal 50’s for a few days.
Only rare loon reports so far. Calling was heard at the north end this morning and Ashley got the long shot a couple days ago here.
Bill P. saw this one up a Silver Lake a couple days ago also, at least the ice is out. Sally reported some ice still on Goshen Dam today and I plan to go up there tomorrow to do at least part of the work needed on the nesting raft if I can get to it. It feels good to get the season going. Boat won’t go in for a few days at least, but I’m ready.
If there is one thing better than a picture of a pileated , it’s a picture of 2 pileateds.
They were hard at work on that stump at the end of our driveway and escaped to their respective trees as we drove closer. It didn’t take them long to return to work. We could hear another one working a couple hundred feet down the road too.
