More wildlife reports

At least three squirrels in the yard this morning, meaning I saw three simultaneously. Saw a couple singly after that; could’ve been the same, could’ve been other ones. One of the original three was Spot, useful for me he has that tail. Down at the river, lots of sun and a scent of spring in the air, though we’re supposed to get more snow tonight. The mergansers are still around. I don’t know why they’re called “red-breasted” when their breasts are among their least distinguishing features.

Also, a pair of mallards, the male with a gorgeous green head, and two pairs of gadwalls, one eating, one sleeping. Chow down, guys, get ready for another stormy night.
