Description

I love these scenes at the Shiawassee NWR where I find a Great Egret or Great Blue Heron all alone in some nook of the refuge, as seen on June, 29, 2022. It is such a privilege to watch these birds in their own habitat, free from predatory activity. As a young Boy Scout hiking this refuge, I saw only ducks and geese, even the latter being quite a treat. Now, the denizens of Shiawassee include a broad array of bird species. Thank-you, John Dingell, a U.S. Representative from Michigan who helped write the Endangered Species Act.
