Egrets in the backyard

January 23, 2020, Davis, CA

Almost every morning, this time of the year, their are five or more egrets on the fairway feeding.  The rain, soaking the soil, brings food to the surface.  I’ll have to do some research to find out what that might be.  It’s nice to look out the sun room windows and see these big, beautiful birds,

they walk slowly, looking intently at the ground, and then grab and swallow.  Nothing like a cold worm on a foggy morning,

I’m glad they’re happy and finding plenty to eat,

and that’s the way the morning started off today.
