Some Good News to Report

While we have been tallying eggs stolen, we do have a nice hatch from the Cedar Waxwings (we didn’t even know they were on the island), the little wren (who chose the hollow gourd again this year) and the ducks on the off shore hammock who have around eight little ones the size of my thumb. We’ve had two turtles lay eggs so far, but a hatch there will be some time off. We've been busy painting the house, so the kayaks are languishing in the basement. I'm looking forward to launching them so we can get a closer view of the ducks. They are well guarded by a forest of what looks to be (and probably is not) cypress knees.
