And After the Rain, Sunshine Flows Like Gold

Finally, I was able to get out without being rained upon for seven days! The highlight is
the first fledgling that I have seen for the season, the European Starling. There's also
a beautiful Carolina Wren that has been perching upon my fence for several days, so the
camera is set up at the back door. He is calling for a female, and if he permits me to get a
photo, I will help him locate one.
The striped skunk is the first that I have seen at the lake this year, which was actually a week
ago, between raindrops, of course. It is definitely a female, as she raised her head when a crying baby was being pushed past her in a buggy. Any female in the animal kingdom takes notice of that.
