Being in Quarantine, sick with Covid-Pneumonia, led me to document daily, unscripted happenings, in my immediate neighborhood. The Herring are running again. The Osprey is calling out in delight. Their nest, on top of their first base field light, dark from no spring training. The Herring leap over the falls, leaving the salt pond and tidal river behind, only to be welcomed by a gang of Cormorants. There are now no humans "helping" them navigate the second fish ladder. Turkey Vultures ride the thermals, always ready to clean up any evidence of death. My guess is that nature likes it better this way.
