~whimsical wednesday- Pssst…..Eugene here~


Remember me? Your friendly guide from the Smith Oaks Rookery in High Island, Texas? 

That’s me in the photo below; in case you forgot, I’am the very handsome Great Egret.

I wanted to share, with you, a few photos of my neighbors with the funny shaped bill. You might remember me telling you a little about them in my first post.

What are they doing down there?

"What are they doing?"
“Don’t you think I am handsome?”


Meet Samuel and Rose
Meet Samuel and Rose

Even though I am extremely busy here at the Rookery, trying to keep Louise happy, I noticed that Samuel and Rose do a lot of weird things with that big spoon shaped bill!

"Gotta itch"
“Gotta itch”


 Man, Samuel is trying to poke her in the mouth!

"Open Wide"
“Give me a kiss Rose”


Hmmmm, now I know exactly what they are up to. Maybe I shouldn’t show you these photos; Samuel might get angry with me. Oh what the heck, he has been angry with me before.


Making Babies
“Hold still Rose”


"Will you please get off of my head"
“Sam, will you please get off of my head!”


"Sweet, I'am feeling happy"
“Sweet baby, I’am feeling happy”


“Aren’t they beautiful and don’t they look so darn happy!”


“Just wait until I get my spoonbill on Eugene! Thanks for stopping by, but next time give us some privacy.”


“I gotta go, Samuel is really mad at me!”
