Worth It All?

Little black and white bodies busily bobbing in the calm water
Worth the bother?
Now picking, now plucking
My pencil I be sucking

I know I'm a terrible poet - blame it on my literature class. The little black and white birds busily bobbing about in the water of Pond C at San Joaquin Wildlife Sanctuary were Red-necked Phalaropes. I dashed down there on my bike this morning to add them to my Bigby list (#215). If you wish to hear of the arduous ride home in the heat of the day, please refer to the previous post.
