When Birds Come To Roost ‘Ere

Spirit Lights The Way

Yesterday on the back deck, in the span of 60 seconds, I saw a pelican fly overhead, then another pelican, then 2 great white egrets, followed by a roseate spoonbill.

I didn’t have my camera handy, so you’ll have to take my word for it.  But here’s a pelican from a previous expedition.

This morning, I saw a great blue heron fishing on the opposite bank, along side a white egret and 2 ibis.

Again, no camera.  But here’s a previous visitor to our deck, or perhaps the same one at a different time.

I also saw a number of vultures swooping and soaring over the lagoon.  Their wings have a tell-tale WHOOSH that I recognize without even looking up.

The vultures reminded me of this naughty joke:  The Farmer’s Cock.  Enjoy!

Aah . . . that’s better!
