March 21, 2015 – weather weary


Notes for today: Yes, we here are weary of the weather. On the other hand, where you have four fingers and a thumb, there are videos of three Red-winged Blackbirds. Today’s Reservoir Dog is Valentino, a male Italian Spinone born November 30, 2004. At least two frozen fish are visible just below the surface of the ice at the Little Fresh Pond dog beach, near the pointed rock just off shore. Local naturalist describes seeing a raptor near Blacks Nook and being unable to identify the species.
