Find #194 GC1N83A Woman's Best Friend
Half of GAIN Academy did not want to go to the park today. (Picture a kid walking down the path reading a book.) Once we get there, someone spots a nice place to play and goes down the path. Everyone follows. The books is put away for the rest of the day. Getting everyone out the door is the hurdle. Once you can get everyone outdoors, they're fine.
We kept thinking we would hear frogs, but it was ducks today. Many black ducks (not the American Black Duck, a mallard-like bird). "A" of GAIN suggested that they are migrating. I'll enlarge the photo I took and attempt an ID. I also have audio of its calls. Unless the water goes down and the banks are more exposed and grassy, I doubt we'll have frogs here. The island (GC15HNN NVG's Isle) is tiny. It is still early, though. We remember frogs being around in late April and early May.
