Yes, it was a beautiful morning. We stood vigil at Goose Pond, a wildlife preserve about 45 miles from our house. We got there before sunrise. What would get me out this early? A report of a White Ibis that had been sighted there. The sky was a shade of red. Later the storms the sky warned of did pass through However we did enjoy the sunrise. It sneaked up over the horizon as we were scanning for any birds coming or going.
The Great Blue Heron, the little speck in this sky, doesn't ever disappoint you. They come and go through the morning sky. No one was complaining about the morning sky.
