The moon set on the Broward as the morning began to break over the marsh. Could the lunar orb be responsible for what I observed today? The Ides of March have passed but something is amiss. It is as if some strange force has gripped the birds.
Erratic movements caught my eye, it was a flock of Snowy Egrets descending on the marsh. Golden rays of light began to penetrate the deep recesses of the marsh. Several of the Snowy Egrets gathered in the lagoon. The normally passive and communal egrets seemed quite upset with each other if another seemed to get too close. What was it that had them all fluffed up? One got quite vocal. It must be Marsh Madness. And then it hit me. They weren’t crazy, just hungry. It was time for breakfast and just a case of “minnow madness”. Whew! Had me worried there for a moment.
I wish that was all the matter with our country. It seems a madness has gripped our country too. I have never seen such heated and bitter rhetoric. Seems this country is so divided that no one is thinking clearly. Except the birds.
