Wood Ducks around Solstice

I had never seen a live specimen before and they are as gorgeous as people claim. Can't really call nature center "wild" but was great to see them (three pairs) in some functioning habitat.

It was a blast watching my girl light up feeding ducks for her first time and a privilege to have her spending time like this with her grandparents.

We were down south in St George (weak little Subarus need oil changes 🤔) and taking my baby girl for a stroll. Hopefully my daughter's luck keeps up throughout her life as she's seen whooping cranes and wood ducks decades before I had.

Grateful to have such lower elevation places so close to home to help escape these short, cold days of December. In fact I believe the days start officially getting longer tomorrow afternoon. I might have to break my new-ish drinking rule and celebrate the solstice with a sip of two midweek.

Happy Solstice everyone.

*Trigger Warning for trolls: there was a Subaru but no clown shoes involved in this sighting

*Sorry for the horrible photos
