Gone Fishin'

Today's drizzly morning must have been a good fishing day along the Beamer Ditch here in Southeast Houston.

My osprey was back, this time on the Parker Williams side of the ditch about half a block northwest of the library. A flock of egrets was gathered another couple of blocks away toward the Beltway, eying the murky water with visions of breakfast in their heads. I usually see one or two egrets along the ditch on my way to work, but today about half a dozen were gathered. The cormorants that usually perch above the creek were gone today.
