Have not yet seen the pair that nests in Kettle Pond each year, but I’ll start watching for them. Usually my first sighting is when they are walking down the street like they own it!
You’ll probably see them soon. I heard their calls around town for about the past week (including calls coming from Vilas Park). So I brought my camera to work the other day, hoping to spot them on a lunchtime walk, and got lucky. Thanks for the comment!
