The Fabulous End of Summer Egret family fly in.

Come one, come all ... the ponds are so low that the fish are wearing muck boots.

PDA's are welcome!  Food, fun and games for all.  Room to stretch your neck out, brush up on your skills,

and chat with friends and family.

Longer legs won't necessarily crown the winner of our fish relay. 

Small group flight training, all skill levels welcome.

Plenty of attended restrooms!  Chaperones and security provided for the youngsters.

Secluded areas for those pre-flight romantic getaway moments.

Solo and couples competitions!

Delicious food, always served up fresh!  Eat fast though, or someone else will try and steal it.

Other species are always welcome to drop in!

But we'll be keeping  an eye you, with our rapid response team.

Join us for a meet-up as we migrate! 

Humans may stop to watch, but we don't care! 

Just be yourself, and enjoy a little time with your feet on the ground.

How lovely!  Thank you for this today.

We also have egrets in our area, which is on the Pacific flyway. There are several large rookeries, which are tall coastal cypress in which they build nests. At times, they are joined by many others that travel from elsewhere. We have two sizes: the Snowy Egret, and a larger version, the Great Egret. They like cows.

I'll bet that heron is pissed about the new competition. Very cool.

You are probably right.  He is the most regular visitor,  and always alone.

Thanks everybody.  It was up there on the list of amazing things I have seen in my lifetime.  It was only a few years ago that we spotted the first Egret we had ever seen in our area, and now, wow.  Global warming indeed.

These are great. Thanks. We are getting new birds in our area as well.

We had to float a nylon mesh over the koi pond to keep the egrets from feeding on on the fish in our backyard... up here in Marin they're everywhere all year round.  Great boids.

Wow. I am glad I saw this ...

It reminds me . . . and without a word

winged creatures came and carried spirit

away ` a mortal frame remained behind.

Nature provides worms to create compost.

Beautiful. I feel Blessed to see a Heron.

There's a few Great Blue Herons Here.

I got a Flying away 'shot' Yesterday.

The real miracle is

walking on Earth

and not water...
