He’s back…and he’s eating my fish.
This, I’m told, is a snowy egret. If I’m wrong, I hope someone who knows more about wading birds will correct me. Everyone deserves to be called by his real name, even when being cussed-out…
For the record, the trail camera did get his picture, but he was so far across the pond that he just looked like a little white stick. The regular camera got him, though I do wish I’d framed it better, and gotten a complete reflection…live and learn.
We did get one interesting visitor from the wildlife cameras… I haven’t seen or heard the coyotes in a few weeks, and have no idea whether or not they have a den close-by this year. Still hoping to see pups one of these days!
Here’s a fellow that needs no introduction! The barn swallows arrived late last week. I didn’t realize how much I’d missed hearing their cheerful chattering. Two pairs have taken the nests from last year, so we’ll have another opportunity to watch Flight Training come the summer!
I can hardly wait!
