My wife and I made our first visit to Hoffman Hills Recreation Area since our return from Iceland. There were a few birds around. It looks like Eastern Bluebirds have taken up residence in several houses.
There was a little activity in the ponds. We found this Muskrat in the first pond. He didn’t pay much attention to us as we walked around the pond. The second pond was completely covered in scum and there was no evidence of any birds or animals using it.
There were a few flowers around. The Spiderwort is the most common.
The Prairie Smoke is just about gone.
Orange Hawkweed is common on the trails.
Dragon Flies are out and about.
