Warm And Windy

The bison at Jester Park were near the fence where I could see them yesterday morning. They weren’t as quick to leave when they noticed me as they have been. The two youngest ones are between 1 1/2 and 2 months old now. They are still curious and exploring.

This morning, the bison were resting most of the time I was there. A goldfinch stopped by to say hello. I sat on one of the rock benches, closed my eyes, and listened to the sounds of a peaceful Sunday morning.

Warm air pushed up from the south at the end of last week. It brought the wind with it. The heat will stay until a cold front storms in from the northwest.
