I am still into driving past Green pond after my daily trips to 248 Starbucks. It looks like the Earth scrapers have been used in the entire area including where the flooded fields were.
What is interesting is that a huge stormwater drainage pond has been built just to the east from the large flooded field "pond" .
I'm hoping that perhaps some waterfowl and wading birds might use this for foraging and a place to hang out in the future. I've been watching some other new stormwater drainage ponds in my area and they don't seem to have a lot of bird action. Hopefully these ponds will be kept natural they can be utilized by wildlife. Anyone else see many birds using these ponds? I'm curious.
There are still a few Great egrets and the big Green pond and a few blue herons. There was a GBH looking for prey in a nearby field the other day which was cool to see.
