Up and down, wet and dry, chilly and pleasant; that's the arc of our week. Much walking for errands, including a swing around the nearby lake; heard a familiar raptor's cry, and looked up to catch an osprey orienting its fishy catch for maximum aerodynamics. I don't remember seeing ospreys in this park before. Plenty of paranoid crows divebombing anyone and anything moving anywhere they think is too close to their fledging offspring. Read in a local news blog that crows have been seen divebombing and picking off ducklings from the lake's surface; they do need to eat.
