Robins, Anhinga, Egret

The Anhinga came to visit on the little lake bank as he sat fishing in the sun.  Unlike other fowl, Anhinga's do not have oily feathers so they must rest between diving for fish to dry their wings.  Sometimes they sit in the sun for several minutes with their wings spread to dry.  Hubby got these pictures before he got too wet.

Then the Robin came to take a bath...

Last, the Egret came walking along the bank, also fishing.  He is so pretty and white in the sunshine.
I hope you enjoy seeing the wildlife that frequents our backyard, our little bit of heaven.  Hubby just finished making a place for sitting that is level on the bank today.  We are going to buy some molded plastic Adirondack chairs to put on it tomorrow.  The bench needs repairs and then will be somewhere else in the yard.
Bill and helper
Thank you for visiting and come back soon!!
My heart to yours....

Oh what I wouldn't give to be sitting there and taking it all in. The Anhinga is an interesting bird. Kind of reminds me of a duck and a goose.

I love watching the little Robin's. When I start seeing a lot them through out the day I know Spring is right around the corner. I love watching them hopping on the lawns looking for bits of whatever they can find.

Have a wonderful week.

What fun it must be to watch the birds!!!! The bench looks like such a wonderful place to sit and ponder.

I have never seen a real anhinga, and didn't know about their feathers. There are such pretty plastic adirondack chairs around here, all colors of the rainbow, and with things painted on them. I have a post to do on them. I will like to see yours.

It must be so wonderful to sit and take in all the glory.
