Walking around Lake Lynn, my wife and I noticed this bird stalking its breakfast. I’ve lived here almost 30 years and have never seen a water-bird like this. What kind is it?

I built this tin obelisk from materials salvaged from an old barn in Apex, NC and wood from my collection.
It’s a little over 4 feet high.
The center is composed of roofing tin from the barn, and the border is re-claimed wood. The wood didn’t come from the barn, I don’t think. I’m pretty sure I used that all up on other projects.

I would really like to go to Montana:
because of this -
Maybe I’ll get there one day. The trip will be a success when I can stand in the middle of a prairie, and see flat horizon for 360degress – at night, devoured by stars.

In just two days, they have surveyed, marked, and started the construction on the ‘surprise’ road widening project.
Looks like I will have ~3 feet less yard (hopefully just easement) and possibly a median.
For what it’s worth, the guys doing the work are pretty nice. Not nemesis material.
