Most of our birds are seasonal. They come and stay with us a for awhile then off they go again, moving to their next destination, only to return once more when the time is right. So many of our birds have been gone since the early fall but are now returning to us for the spring and summer. Even our turtles are beginning to come back, but so far, they have been very elusive and will not pose for the camera.
Yesterday was the first time our egrets made their appearance. I only saw two, but soon, there will be many more. They were only up in the trees, and not on the shore or in the reeds as they usually are, but that’s OK. At least they are starting to come back. I love the egrets.
The egrets are not the only ones returning to us. We have one lone double crested cormorant who has found his way back home to us for the season. He has been busy enjoying himself on the 3rd lake. Again, he is the first of many yet to come. They are always welcome too.
This summer block party is just getting started. Soon it will really be hoppin’ and the gang will all be here.
