Green Lake Avians: Part 3

Hey, it’s National Bird Day! What better day to show you the third, and final (for the moment), installment featuring feathered friends. Though I had never heard of NBD before today, I do, in fact, love birds, so it seems like a fine day.

One of my early childhood memories is of listening to the white-throated sparrows near our house sing to each other on hot summer days. I also used to feed bread to the swans and ducks in Cheboygan, MI, with my grandparents – I enjoyed it so much they would save bread for weeks for just this purpose. I even recall them purchasing a loaf just for me, when all the stale stuff had been tossed and I was … sad.

So watching these ducks on the great Green Lake was a nice reminder of past delights.

Thanks for joining me on my trip to Seattle’s Green Lake! I hope you’ve found these posts to be … just ducky!
