While visiting the under-construction arboretum the Town of Babylon is building, I was introduced to a mamma Killdeer tending her four eggs. There were two nesting birds under blueberry bushes, this one was less afraid of us and let me get close. Jennifer, the town arborist, and I were actually picking blueberries from this bush. The other mamma bird wouldn't let us get close at all. She jumped around with her wing flat on the ground as if she is hurt. I love the red around her eye. Happy father's day to all the dads out there!
As I was walking along the beach Friday I came across Glenn Beck's Christmas Sweater book in the sand. Looks like it's been there awhile. There was no money between the pages so I took it to a neer-by trash receptacle and disposed of it. That red cover did stand out against the sand.
