Wood duck and ducklings

Rain was threatening this afternoon, but we got in a short walk to Scudder Pond to see the wood duck and her ducklings. Though I am only a beginning birder, I do get emails from a local bird group, and knew at least 2 wood ducks had been spotted with young on the pond.

We walked to Whatcom Falls.  The past 2 days of rain has not much affected our own Silver Creek, but the falls was moving pretty swiftly.

Though we have enjoyed the past 2 weeks of unusually sunny weather, it is way too soon to begin the summer drought.  Our garden welcomed the rain.
