Ok, so the Wife's Dad has a large pond at his house, a pond that he is now draining so he can clean up the bottom of it. This has attracted a large number of birds such as storks and egrets because of the fish that get "beached". I just thought I just thought I would share because the photos are interesting.
Here we see the gathering of the birds
Better way to die: dry out and suffocate, or get eaten?
Whenever someone went near the pond, the birds would take off as a group, and circle high above for a while
Then a few of them would come back, like this guy who flew almost right over us
Another interesting site is this little red guy, who visits sometimes
