When There Was Water   Leave a comment

I was going over some old photos today, and reminiscing.  It was so beautiful around here when there was water in the river.  Looking at May of 2012, I decided to re-edit a couple of the old photos.  I was especially fond of these wood ducks.

Then there was this oriole, sitting in a cottonwood.

Well, there are still plenty of orioles around.  They just love my hummingbird feeder.  Wood ducks, though, are few and far between.  I posted that shot of the empty wood duck nest box a few days ago.

Well, they’re talking about El Nino on the news again, and predicting torrential rain, flash floods, and landslides.

We’ll believe it when we see it.
