Henry & Patty

These two whoopers have been hiding deep in the marsh near Henry’s pond since early June, so I was delighted, while on my way to Princeton this week to see them out in their favorite foraging field!

Still no sign of the Royal Couple (4-12 & 3-14) out from their hiding spot but we’ll let you know as soon as they emerge.

    Do you know if Henry and Patty nested this season? Lots of hope in that photo for next Spring.

    Difficult to believe that Henry is 6 yrs. old already. Where does the time go???
