Birds to brighten your day: May 22

A Day on Merganser Lake

I like this photo as it is a good kickoff to Memorial Day Weekend. We celebrate Memorial Day as the start of the summer season, but its real meaning, of course, is much more important and somber. The name mourning dove itself reflects this reality, but the bird’s pose is also somewhat reflective. Thanks to our fallen heroes.

Have a great Memorial Day Weekend everybody.

(Repeat text for context:  I’m running out of COVID-19 lockdown themes so from now until things get back to some semblance of normalcy, I will simply post my best photo from the previous day. You could say it fits because of its uncertainty and challenge. I’ll call the series “A Day on Merganser Lake,” even though that’s not the real name of the lake I live near in southwestern Connecticut, it’s just a nod to my favorite duck family.)
