Aren't they cute? They were joined by at least three families of Mallards I saw in the LaCrosse River wetland yesterday, along with two baby woodchucks nibbling at trailside. Though I didn't see them, others reported seeing a Virginia Rail with at least two chicks in the same wetland.

As further testament to hope for the future, three Peregrine Falcon chicks hatched atop the US Bank building in downtown LaCrosse were banded today by Bob Anderson of the Raptor Resource Project. Two girls and a boy. You can read all about it here.

The world is not collapsing---at least not for now.
