    Default Canal Birds

    We sat out on our swing this evening and had a wonderful show of water birds. An Anhinga, Little blue heron, White heron and Ibis. Along with the birds we saw turtles, butterflies and a little gator. Life is a wonderful thing.

    What a nice place you have Cin! I agree life is wonderful, especially if you can just relax in your swing and enjoy sight like that.

    I believe they were white. They were a ways up in the air and I wasn't expecting to see them at all. Don't even know why I looked up. Was quite a surprise though.
