Social isolation day #703 Thursday, February 17, 2022

Bog safari report- lots of litter. I need to carry a trash bag on the next trip for the non biodegradable items. I don’t mind folks throwing out old pumpkins and Christmas tree litter, but broken toys, bottles, pipes and the like is a bit much.

Photos are some of the leavings found on walkies, from a possum vertebra to some of the trash mentioned above. Selfies of Sisto and Harold at the end.

Weather was nice, light haze, about 50⁰F, ground was moist but not mucky. Still a good idea to wear a windbreaker, or long sleeves, in case of rain.

Critters were plentiful. Panda cat, many blackbirds, crows, squirrels, a couple of turkey buzzards. No blue Jay’s, but a few small birds with yellow butts.
