Geese and other birds

It feels like summer now with temperatures around 24C/75F. We have been having one-layer days, just a jersey nothing over it! The last time I posted I was freezing.

Geese and their goslings – there were more little ones scattered about

In the forest, put up by the Department of Forestry I presume. Not very fanciful, sort of like government housing.

The only other model I saw on my ride through woods.

All about a program to protect woodpeckers

A woodpecker tree – Ein Spechtbaum

These woods are different – Dieser Wald ist anders.

I looked up PEFC and found this: PEFC is the abbreviation for “Program for Endorsement of Forest Certification Schemes”. This somewhat unwieldy name hides the world’s most successful forest certification system. In Germany, two thirds of the forests are certified according to the PEFC standards.

I didn’t have my bike for a couple of days because it was at the bike shop getting a spring tuning, preparation for when we set out next week for our TOUR IN FRANCE! I’ll be writing up our travels over on CycleBlaze – that is if I am not too tired at night. But I’ll try. The introduction is already posted.

I'm a US born ex-pat, having lived most of my adult life in Munich, Germany. Cycling and photography are my favorite things.

    Nice photos!
    The face in the middle window of the stork photo appears to show some concern and disbelief the stork is on the railing.
    Looking forward to your journal — looks like a great time about to take place!

      Ha ha, I didn’t see that face! A pareidoelia! He does look upset about the new baby.
