On yesterday's morning exercise walk I did "something wild"---I stopped to
look at a Common Grackle, wondering what it was chasing and feeding on, in
the middle of Lilydale road. It turned out to be a huge hatch of
Mayflies---their timing may be tardy, but the birds didn't mind, and we can
be glad if it indicated cleaner waters on the Mississippi, a few yards away
(though it's kind of slick power-walking through the insect carnage)!
