|Fosdic Mama Duck & Babies|
Something appears to have gone dire wrong since the last time I had a close up look at Fosdic Lake.
Every year, during the HOT heat of summer, when the temperature goes over 100 day after day, Fosdic Lake can take on a greenish hue, due to algae flourishing in the warm water.
It is currently a bit less than 2 months until summer. The temperature has gotten into the high 80s and low 90s a couple times this year. Currently it is 89.
Yet, for some reason Fosdic Lake has a huge mass of green vegetative matter floating over much of the lake.
I only saw about 10 ducks today and five of them were the babies you see in the picture.
Where have all the Fosdic ducks gone? And the other Fosdic birds? Are the Fosdic birds being like a parakeet in a mine? Do they know that Fosdic Lake has turned foul and have escaped to cleaner waters?
None of the Fosdic ducks I saw today were in the water. Maybe they do not like floating in a high wind. As it was being very windy today in the noon time frame. Or maybe ducks don't like floating with little islands of algae.

And where were the Fosdic turtles? The turtles love it when the temperature is as hot as it is today. Usually I'd see dozens of Fosdic turtles, swimming in the water, sunning on logs. Today no turtles.
What is Fosdic Lake going to be like when the heat of summer arrives? Will it become totally choked with algae?
This is all very disturbing.
