While I try to hold back on posting too much of the same subject matter, the rookery at Murphy Park in Taylor, when the area is active, is a place of peace and relief. This week, I got up before dawn for an early-morning look. The first photo was taken then. The rest of the images were made about 13 hours later on the same day. A story from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram this week was interesting, about egrets nesting in neighborhoods there, creating quite a mess. Local folks in Taylor tell me the egrets have also dropped a lot of poop on their yards and homes, too, but I haven’t heard much about that recently. They are a protected species. Despite their drawbacks, I do enjoy seeing them. As always, it’s therapy.
