Bird Watching Brothers

With a low tide and a fresh rain, the birds were working hard to extract all sorts of tasty goodies from the muddy marsh floor. The birds are lots of fun to watch, both for canines and humans.

    Frankie-you are SO focused on those birds and so patient. I LOVE your thunder shirt-you look SO handsome! Your little brother though does not have the patience and chooses instead to go after bugs-lol!!! I LOVE that the herd NOW had so much NEW scenery to look at!
