Midsummer Waterfowl

Canada Geese

Despite yesterday's torrential downpours, the water level in the river is dropping. This creates more feeding opportunities for mallards and geese. Fish swim about in the pools forming in the rocky shallows below the dam but no herons have been hunting there lately.  These low levels seem normal for this time of year. These drawings were done in the last few days. It really feels like summer: hot and humid!
