Mangy groundhogs make poor photographic fodder, but blue robin’s eggs are a delight and a sight for sore eyes. There is a heron wading upstream of the metal bridge and one heard squawking in the upper third mile. Many young squirrels are out and about, plus a cardinal and a red-headed woodpecker. A trickle of antique cars travels the road, across the creek. Recent rains pelted and pounded the earth, signs of it are everywhere. Partly sunny and mostly cloudy best describes this beautiful day.
