Well the local birds clearly decided that is was bath day in the salt marsh this afternoon.
I saw an egret, several wood storks, and a couple of white ibis all taking advantage of the beautiful day to bathe and then use the warm sun to dry off.
These are also birds I rarely see bathe and splash around in the water so it was an interesting and exciting treat. I suppose it’s possible that much of the wildlife is finally breathing a sigh of relief that the severe rain and wind is now behind us, and they can afford the luxury of sprucing themselves up a bit. 🙂
