Wayward Bird

A wayward bird, of which I have not seen in the immediate vicinity of my home, but afar typically outside of the city in rural fields and most often amongst cattle, hence its given common name of “Cattle Egret”, has been roaming our neighborhood the pass week feeding off the green lawns of my neighbors. It can be seen stalking along intently eyeing the grass for large earthworms driven to the surface by the wet winter soil or simply perched on the roof ridge of surrounding homes. It’s probable that the abundance of large earthworms typically encountered in our lawns after watering or heavy rain, will keep it returning for a while.
