Wet weather brings inland flocks of gulls that move from yard to yard eating earthworms that are driven to the surface by water. The gulls squabble over landing rights, territory, and whatever else gulls find to fuss about.

That is standing water you see in the foreground. Yesterday we saw small birds happily bathing and splashing about in our grass. It’s been worse.

Canada goose

We had enough rain last Sunday to cause minor flooding in our yard. There is a small seasonal pond that catches runoff from our roofs and it overflowed. That caught the attention of Canada geese and mallard ducks that have visited all week. I know the geese can be an annoyance but if they don’t overstay their welcome they can be very pretty.
