Finally! A Killdeer!
I don't think I've seen a killdeer for over a month and, finally, I saw Pollux by himself. I didn't see the rest of his family, though. I think I also heard Smudge on the other side of the lake. I was afraid something had happened to her.
I also found the orange duckling who has more feathers than he had when he was dumped.
I think this might be Stretch, the duckling, also getting his wings.
This is the mom with the two youngest ducklings at the lake leading them away:
I thought this next duck was a duckling around the same age as Stretch, but I think he's actually a much older duck. He was bleeding under his chin, but I don't know from what. I think he got in a fight. But, he was acting OK otherwise.
