I finally had a day to myself. After briefly stopping at work, to check in with the progress of the current show, I got to go cycling with Robb. We packed up the bikes, and headed out to Alameda for some sunshine and wind.
The egrets are nesting on Bay Farm Island, again! These normally elegant birds are behaving in a totally undignified manner. It's difficult to tell if what we're seeing is fighting or nookie, but it certainly is a spectacle. And the noise! Robb and I never stop finding humor in these birds' cries of "ob-glob-glob" and what sounds weirdly like "hello" and "I love Robb."
We won't dwell on the part where I was crapped on by egrets. Frankly, I'm surprised this doesn't happen more often.
