Spring migrants at Jerry's Pond

 I borrowed some seeds from the bottomland restoration and planted them around our cattle ponds, including Jerry's Pond, pictured here.   While I was planting, spring migrants were feeding--a pair of blue-winged teal yesterday (March 28, 2013), and a greater yellowlegs today.  The cattle have been excluded from the ponds now, so the seeds will have a chance to sprout and grow.   Perhaps the vegetation will help the ponds become even more nourishing to wildlife!
