Pond Treats, Perhaps

I intentionally chose to live away from water.  Once one has been flooded, one retains a distinct aversion to too much proximity to lakes, ponds, creeks, and any other body of water.  But at times I envy those who can look upon water from their homes.  Today, walking a greenway that threads between a pond and apartments, I came across a large group of Hooded Mergansers (shown) and then two Bald Eagles.  Quite a display for a little suburban enclave!  But then again, the birds will be gone and weather will overcome the delights of this view.  I can walk.
