Fly Away

I’ve been watching for herons and egrets for the past two weeks. I think the egrets left us during the first week of October. About five days ago I saw two herons, but they’ve been missing since then. I think I can say that they have flown south for the winter. I need to check blogs from previous years to see if they have left earlier than usual.
l love watching for those beautiful birds. I will be waiting for them eagerly next spring. Maybe I can persuade Dear Husband to take a trip south during the winter, just to check up on our feathered friends.
