Town Pond is buzzing this year! Honestly, I don't think there's ever been so much activity.
I drove by the other day and on the west side was a beautiful big heron along the shore. Scattered throughout the water were at least a dozen or so ducks in small groups, and across on the eastern side the swan family had staked out some territory: mom and dad were hovering close to the three small ones, who were swimming around the edges looking for goodies.
The pond has never been busier than it is this year and its almost distracting when I drive by. It seems as though there's always something exciting going on and new residents - or perhaps weekend visitors - are always around. Just like the rest of the town.
