I'd like to lodge a weather complaint. Of course I'll need to get behind everyone else, the people whose lives have been upended by the floods Upstate. I'm content to take my deservedly distant place in line, but I am still frustrated by the rainy weather and the rivers and streams running like chocolate milk. For a guy obsessed with finding turtles, particularly turtles in the water, this has been frustrating stuff to work with.

Here's a picture of the tidal portion of the Schuylkill from last weekend.

Even now, a week later, the Schuylkill and the Delaware are way above their mean and median flow for this time of year.

I found no herps on that outing but from the 34th St. Bridge I did engage this hawk in a staring contest.
