A far too rare family outing

Sunday, with a big spring sun blasting down upon us, we decided to play hooky from chores and go walk about Westham Island. It is one of our favorite places as it is affordable for a whack of us to go plus have a lovely walk about.

Dennis, one of Bui's best friends had never been here before. We were Dosha-less as she was sick home at her Mum's on the weekend. Dennis, and his sister Payton are our weekend surrogate children and often as not, spend weekends with us.

Dennis and Bui couldn't help flogging each other with bull rushes and scattering the fluff about. Ah...to be 14!

In addtion to some American Coots, Northern Pintails, Widgeon ducks, Bald Eagles and oodles of Mallards, We stumbled upon a pair of Sandhill Cranes, which I now see from this list, is a very rare thing.

Gee I wish I knew my birds.
