Fall Returns

I guess I shouldn’t have been surprised when I woke up this morning to find the house shrouded in fog and the fog horns sounding in the distance. After all, the Canada Geese
had returned to Theler’s Wetlands when we were there yesterday.

The resident Great Blue Heron

was fishing next to the creek when we went by in the morning,

Great Blue Heron on Fence

and had taken up his familiar spot on the fence railings by the time we returned at the end of our walk.

It appears we are going to have an intense but short summer this year since it was late arriving and, if the birds are any indicator at all, it will be leaving shortly.
