There were other birds including a Towhee and an unidentified Sparrow. Like most people I have trouble identifying the Sparrows.
I had a LOT of trouble identifying this little guy when I first saw him on the lake a few years ago. I went home and looked at every duck in the book but none looked like him (her?). I kept seeing him and searching until one day I happened to be in the Grebe section and there he was!! A pied-billed Grebe. I saw him again this morning. Mostly a loner although I have seen two at a time. He swims quite near the edge of the lake and doesn't seem overly concerned that I'm there.
No early morning walk for me tomorrow. I'm off to do my grocery shopping first thing, when the stores are not yet busy. By the time I've walked around the store, brought the groceries home ( with my DH's help, of course) and put them away I'm more tired than after walking around the lake!
That's the time to put the kettle on and sit with a cup of tea.
Do you do your shopping on a certain day or just make random trips whenever you need something?
