Several weeks ago we were visited by a pair of White Egrets. I think that they found it hard to fly because it was blowing very badly. This is not the first time we have been visited by egrets or their cousins the Great Blue Herons. Like all previous visits, they ate all the goldfish in our pond. They couldn't leave yet, so they ate apricots lying on the ground! That is the craziest thing yet! After several days, they flew off. They must have been hungry after a diet of apricots.
I own & operate a u-pick orchard featuring stone & pome fruit. The orchard is located on the airport that we also own & operate in the high desert north of Los Angeles. The orchard & the airport keep us very busy, but they are so much fun. You can reach us at (661) 261-3216 or firstname.lastname@example.org or www.brianranch.com
