Early this morning we saw some wood storks, a great egret, and a great blue heron all standing next to a tiny island in the marsh pond. They looked like they were all ready to start a meeting but needed to wait until everyone had arrived. We weren’t sure if this was the arrival they were expecting or not, but an alligator decided to join the group and settle in comfortably on the island.
The birds stood around and actually appeared a little confused about their new “member”…had he actually been invited?…if so, by who? Deciding that since he was already there, and seemed ok, the meeting continued. Well, after about 10 minutes the meeting concluded and all the birds departed the area leaving the new guy alone. With all business now completed, the alligator also left the island and floated off to his next assignment. We’re hoping that all issues were successfully discussed and a mutual agreement was reached!
