Greetings from Black Rock Regional Park

It was very cold on Saturday, so after a lazy morning and a couple of Pokemon raids, we went to Black Hill Regional Park. We were hoping to see the eagles who nest there, though they were frustratingly hiding, but there were buffleheads, wood ducks, mallards, geese, and mergansers in the lake, plus house wrens, Carolina wrens, juncos, and many bluebirds. We took the shorter trail by the water because it was so cold and drove around to the other parking lot to see more birds.

When we got home, Paul made a plant-based version of avgolemono, which we had for dinner with hummus and lebneh. Then we watched Mank, which is slow to get started and has some typical Hollywood Story stuff but the acting and relevance of the storyline drew us in. Afterward we checked out the Studio Ghibli offerings on HBO Max and watched Whisper of the Heart, which starts as a teen drama but is gorgeous to look at and eventually grows up with its protagonist.
