Tonight Kathi and I were out at a local wetland watching TUNDRA SWANS go to roost and AMERICAN WOODCOCK doing their famous evening flight display. I had forgotten how wonderful the swans can sound. The woodcock proved difficult to see but we did get some close encounters with silhouettes buzzing by us.
Best of all, it was a beautiful early spring evening punctuated by the rising full moon. On the horizon the moon appeared larger than ever because it was the famous PERIGEE MOON - the closest moon in almost 20 years. It was a wonderful way to end the day.
