On Sunday, Fred and I spent two hours on the North Shore Lake Hodges trail.
It is an interesting walk due to the plethora (yes, I know what a plethora is) of peculiar bird sounds.
It creates a peaceful ambiance, but watch out for the mountain bikers (not so peaceful).
Lake Hodges is a man-made reservoir that contains 33,500 acre-feet of water; plenty of room for over 200 different species of birds, and us.
The avifauna here is spectacular, even if you are not an avid bird watcher.
