Early Spring on Stong Pond
It is only March 7 but Stong Pond is full thawed (Again! Twice this winter.) and the Canada geese are returning to stop for a respite or to do a bit of breeding soon. There were around 200 in and around the pond. Most cannot be seen here for they were resting on the embankments to the left and right of this photo. It was a gorgeous, sunny, windy, and spring-like day with blue skies and a temperature of around 13C. Looks like the prognosticating rodent was correct this time.
More Stong pond blips from January 2012, June 2011, May 2011, April 2011, October 2010, and December 2009.
