Ah...so yeah, it's STILL raining. Slowly...going...crazy...quickly...going...crazy...Two days ago we made a break for it, thinking we might get a little time sans rain. Wrooong. We drove to north about 20-25 minutes, straight into some gnarly looking clouds. We saw at least 5 different rainbows. The skies were so confused: rainbows, low hanging black clouds, a few rays of so-called sun shining through. It was weird.
The water is still really high (not surprising) and many of the fields are still flooded. Check it out. That water is not usually there. The saturated fields made the shorebirds happy though, that's for sure. Tons of 'em! I got a picture of a killdeer and a Bonaparte's Gull. The gull had some messed up secondary feathers (probably from the weather) on his right side, but when he finally flew off, he was doing just fine. He was gorging himself on worms. We watched him for a while; he was thoroughly enjoying the grub. Watery Wednesday and Weekend Reflections
