Veteran's Day was a day of reflection yesterday. It was also a lovely day to take a walk and to enjoy the sun highlighting Sapsucker Woods in Ithaca. Sam and I drove the short distance to the woods and enjoyed the walk around the pond. There were geese to watch in the distance, but not a lot of other birds. I presume that the hersons have left for warmer climes. I did notice that there are now aerators in the pond, which are meant to keep the pond from freezing so the wintering birds have a resource for swimming and drinking.
