Evening In The Marsh
Yesterday evening we went out to see if there was any activity in the marsh. Not a whole lot going on but we did see some things…
A baby alligator (well, we refer to any gator 3 feet or under as a baby) floating in the water with just his little head exposed.
A Clapper Rail, a small marsh bird, was seen picking around among the oyster beds.
A Great Blue Heron who decided that it would be more comfortable standing on one leg.
A White Ibis did a quick flyby.
A Snowy Egret was seen fishing in the salt marsh.
A Tricolored Heron was also fishing for minnows and seemed to be pretty successful!
And a young alligator who looked particularly attractive with it’s colorful stripes lit by the late evening sun…
