The Boys are in the first picture - Mr. Slave Driver leading his fellow hunters to the woods to clear and clean up a few trails and meadows. He really didn't work them too hard and I know they enjoy it so they didn't grumble too much.
We have a ton of ducks on our lake and they are fun to watch and identify. I have my Birds of Ontario handbook and my binoculars and I still have trouble. I have to take my glasses off to look thru the binoculars then I have to put them back on to read the book to identify them. There is one pair on the lake I haven't seen in any of my bird books. The mystery ducks. And our lone Loon is back. Maybe he will find a friend this year.
