I was walking my dog near Wabansia and Central Park and a sweet and timid adult male pit bull, mostly black with some white marks walked right up to us. He was very friendly with my dog (tried getting a little too friendly if you know what I mean), and seemed frightened of me but warmed up eventually. He had a collar but no leash. I have seen him around two other times on my street but this was the...
I was walking my dog near Wabansia and Central Park and a sweet and timid adult male pit bull, mostly black with some white marks walked right up to us. He was very friendly with my dog (tried getting a little too friendly if you know what I mean), and seemed frightened of me but warmed up eventually. He had a collar but no leash. I have seen him around two other times on my street but this was the first time I really got a good look at him. He doesn't seem skinny but he's filthy. I'm assuming he lives outside if he has a home. Any idea where he belongs. I would hate for him to get hit by a car. I was trying to get him to follow us all the way home but then he stayed back a few blocks before I got home. Next time I walk my dogs I am going to bring an extra leash and my phone to maybe get a photo of him. If you know anything about this dig let me know. I don't think it is too uncommon for dogs to get out in this neighborhood. Sad :(

3300 block Le Moyne: woke up to about 10 gun shots around 6:15 am. Anyone else hear this? I hope no one was hurt. A few cars got shot up.

Birds singing, dragonfly wings shimmering in the sunlight, tree buds opening up a soft green, and a carpet full of blue flowers by the formal garden. Children gleefully playing at the playground, making noises as their job entails them to do. A woman sitting on a bench, reading a book, while her dog lies on the grass, panting furiously. There's a wind carbine (I think that's what they're called) directly opposite the westernmost entrance/exit to the boathouse--I never noticed that...
Birds singing, dragonfly wings shimmering in the sunlight, tree buds opening up a soft green, and a carpet full of blue flowers by the formal garden. Children gleefully playing at the playground, making noises as their job entails them to do. A woman sitting on a bench, reading a book, while her dog lies on the grass, panting furiously. There's a wind carbine (I think that's what they're called) directly opposite the westernmost entrance/exit to the boathouse--I never noticed that before! Some students from Columbia filming a project.
Caught on camera! My mystery bird! Three of them today! Quacking and submerging. Unfortunately, again, I did not have my camera with me, as this was an impromptu visit. Did capture it on my cell camera, but too far away to make any distinctions. But in talking to someone else on the bench, he said that he's seen them there before, being quite vocal. I heard one call, but didn't capture that on video. From his description of it, I do think it's an American coot, but I will try to keep my camera at the ready so when I go out, it's there to pick up.
If there's anybody reading this who will help out at the clean up tomorrow near the nature habitat, see if you can get a picture of these birds, and post them. I would appreciate that!
There was even a loon out in the middle. Yes, a beautiful day!

May be pregnant. Please help us find her! She was lost from Division/Rockwell area. If found please call Stephan at (402) 290-3696

I was at my favorite spot, the Wildlife Refuge area. While sitting on the bench, among the usual citizens there, I saw a small, dark-colored duck with a white beak. I have looked on two web sites (Flyways and Ducks Unlimited) and neither has an image of it, so I don't know what it is, which makes me even more curious. Also seen: a big, reddish-colored fish breaching! First time I've ever seen a fish jump out of the water! And a male ballard trying to get close to a female and getting chased around by her mate. The intruder landed by my side of the lagoon quacking galore!
Ah, such a beautiful sight.
