Baby Blue Herons

I see the beginnings of Fall. The days are getting shorter. The first colors on leaves are here, some yellow, some bright red. I had reached the end of the trail where there is a small swamp in a secluded area. I have seen the Blue Heron here several time. Today, I saw two birds flying over the swamp. From their flight and the pointed feet, I instantly recognized them. They were baby blue herons. Just slightly larger than a pigeon. It warmed my heart to know that the adult Herons had a successful mating season this year. The babies are thriving and I will see them around.
