If you have ever seen a brown thrasher running along the ground sorting through the brush and throwing things this way and that, then you know where the name came from. They are not only excellent foragers, but they have a beautiful song. It’s wonderful to see them again this summer. Click on pictures to enlarge.
Little specks of yellow dot the fields and the green is lush and fragrant. Dragonflies are everywhere. Thousands of voices sing. On this morning, I spotted deer, a host of blackbirds, grackles, robins, sparrows, catbirds, indigo buntings, painted buntings, northern cardinals, goldfinches, a huge diversity of frogs, a dickcissel singing loudly, wood ducks, turtles (snappers and painted), geese, great egrets, great blue herons, cattle egrets, little blue herons, mink, muskrats, and the hundreds more.

There are many little blue herons at the Wakarusa Wetlands. Stop by and see the rich diversity of this magical place. Save it, don’t pave it! http://www.facebook.com/wetlandspreservationorganization?ref=ts
