It’s been raining on and off (mostly on) all week. Two of our net lanes are now flooded. The trees are dripping, the grass is dripping, the day campers are dripping. Still, it’s a beautiful sight, and other than severely cramping my style, I still love rainy days.
We can’t band when it is raining, and we’ve had to cancel a few days. This morning the weather report seemed better. Skies cleared last night, and although it dawned misty, foggy, damp, and soggy this morning, the rain held. The birds were the bright spots on an otherwise dismal-looking day, especially this handsome male Baltimore oriole. Isn’t he stunning?
