House Hunting




With many of the nesting boxes underwater, a pair of wood ducks went house hunting high in the oak trees next to the Edge Trail.  The male flew to several trees sticking his head into what I assume was a potentially cozy cavity, then he would turn and look at his mate...no doubt for her approval.  She sat still and attentive, but if she had an opinion, it didn't show.  I hope they've settled on a home and won't be dismayed when the water recedes and the traffic resumes underneath them.
