Bona Dea was cloudy, wet and windy today. It had rained .80inches since this time yesterday. There were some Cormorants on the snag in Lake Dardanelle and one was spreading its wings out like they like to do. Also a very small brown Pied-billed Grebe duck was close to the parking area and I took a photo of it. In town down the road from my house there was a beautiful Saucer Maganolia tree with pink blooms and a pic of it here. In Waldon Pond by Swinging Bridge Trail on the small island the Canadian Geese pair I have been writing about finally decided to nest there. You have to click on the photo here to see the female on the nest. Also there were some Bradford Pear trees with their white blooms all over the park and photos here are of some of them. Due to the unusual weather today the birds were not out and around except for the Gulls flying overhead and some American Crows. No ducks were seen today but another pair of Geese had come into Waldon Pond and the male goose gaurding the nesting female was warning them not to come closer. The spillway was running pretty good and they were actually not pumping water today. So Prarie Creek was nice and full. It was too cold for the turtles to come out to bask in the sun had their been sun.
