Original Post: Waiting for the Spring Floods to Subside – 86/365 – April 11, 2014

We did manage to get out for a walk around the wetland habitat nearby last Sunday afternoon, in the hopes of catching sight of some spring nest building or other activity. Instead, we found the ice still in the middle of the water, only the shores having open areas. On top of this late melt, there have been heavy rains and the paths and inland woods areas were either flooded or still snow covered. These mallard seemed pretty fed up, in what should have been the floor of the forest at the edges of the wetlands. He seems to be on the water, where she has one foot on the rock, balancing neatly, while the other is tucked under her.
