A grasshopper hitched a ride with me.
American Kestrel watches over the construction. I have not seen either the Belted Kingfishers or the Osprey. There may be too much commotion for them. Here is the plan for his kayaker rapid construction.
It will be some time, Spring of 2012, when this portion is complete. It will be fun following the progress.
