20171029-30 Cattle Egret and end of October storms

We saw our first Cattle Egret at Dave and Irene’s farm on October 29th.  It seems that it was moving South as it was seen at Rich and Judy’s place in B.I. later in the day.

Audubon says that these birds were unknown to North Americans prior to 1952, indication a remarkable expansion of their range.

The next day we had typical fall stormy weather giving us presentations of billowing clouds dappling the light on our landscapes:

You might have noticed a pause in my posting to this blog.   My cellular phone modem failed and  it took a while to get it replaced properly.

On a completely different note you might find this short video illuminating:

The ending is ironically hilarious!

  1. Great pictures Tom. Maureen and Dave are visiting with me right now and we were just talking last night that you hadn’t posted for a while. Re the video…sadly, that’s what the Trump era has done to our world! Good one!

  2. Thanks, Pat. My best regards to Maureen and Dave. They’ll be missing the snowstorm forecast for Britt this weekend.
    Yes, I have my internet connector fixed so I’ll again be bothering friends with emails etc.
    The era has exposed a lot of latent stuff that was previously in closets. Now that it’s out in the open it is time to deal with it, methinks. The lack of engagement with integrity is somewhat concerning, though.
    The ending of the video is great, eh?
