Bona Dea Update
Bona Dea was very cold today. Patches of snow lay on the ground and ice had formed around the edges of the creek and ponds. Mallard ducks seemed to enjoy the cold. The Gulls were flying high and about. Same Cardinal bird seen at the same place at the head of Swinging Bridge trail to the north. Unusual creature seen jogging with shorts and t-shirt. The holly bush on old shorty trail by the east parking lot still had its red berries and bright green folage. Looks Christmasy for sure. Strange as I did not see the numerous Turkey Vulchers today. Been a few days since the Great Blue Heron was at its usual area. Probably staying by the fire.
