Our rainfall has mostly leveled out for the year, but we had such a wet spring that several acres of low-lying farmland on my commute have been underwater for several months. I notice an egret or two there most times I drive by, and I’ve been thinking “I need to grab my camera.”
Well, I did so at lunch today, and I picked a good day. It was a party.
Score! There were at least 20 birds there today—six common egrets, a great blue heron, and a lot of what I believe are juvenile mallards.
