After work, it was nice out, so I took the dog over to William Land Park for a short walk. Lots of parents out there with their loud kids. I know it’s a public park, but all that noise doesn’t make for very good nature viewing; it scares all the animals away. The Hooded Merganser ducks were back – but back down to one male instead of two; and the Great Egret was there. At one point it actually flew away from where the noisy children were and came over to stand near me. I guess, even with the dog, I was less of a “threat” to it. Got a few photos before heading back to the car and going back home.
