“Rejoice with your family in the beautiful land of life!” – Albert Einstein

Wattoola is the native American name for the bird – specifically Creek indians – from William Bartram’s Travels.

It is interesting the way Sand Hills and their young hang out together – mom, dad, and babies. As spring progresses I will be interested to see if other birds mimic this behavior. Ducks follow mom, but dad’s not usually around.
