small lake forms in the meadow– so nice to have rain after the drought

Song sparrow singing, catching a bug, and continuing to sing in the rain.  Sorry for the uneven filming, a dog I was holding on a leash ran off while I was taping but I kept that part in because I liked seeing  the song sparrow grab the bug even though it is blurry.  Sorry too, about the rain drops on the camera lens.

Just love to see the water rushing over the weir after living through last year’s drought.
