How cute! They're pretty big already.

Thanks, Jessica! I know - its amazing how fast birds grow!

Last night was really the first time these guys seemed noticeably to be moving out of the adorable baby stage to starting to be teen-agers, sort of like 10-year old kids! And the other downside of them getting bigger, with longer necks that can get the deeper pond weeds, is that the parents are being a lot more adventurous, not staying too close to shore much, and traveling around the full extent of the lake, so it gets hard to always find them.

Geet canny pic Kamaly,(I've hooked up with a Geordie lass). What I said was nice though, don't worry. Sorry about the quarantine, I suppose you caught a "shutterbug". One sneeze less and you would have caught a pretty number. Get well soon. Guy.

Aah , nooo, at forst Ah wez worried tha Ah always thowt Geordies were Brittish but they were really Ah entered 'Geordie' into Google, an cyame up wi a page yee might find helpful in communicating wi her!

Alas, fre me there's ne Geordie te English link Ah could find, so I'll hev te continue wondering what 'a pretty number' waad be related te sneezing ( an noo a bit of a fever...I'm git glad it's cloudy an drab so Ahm not missing a sunset!)....

Very funny to realize I know several Geordies, but they don't admit it. And very nice to know your arachnitecture trap and your bouquet of hand-picked trees did the trick! ;)

Eeeh man, ahm gannin te the booza. Ye knaa what ah mean leik.

(and just like with gTranslate, I hope that's an actual understandable translation. But if not, I deny any responsibility. It's the translator's fault!)
