Weakening of the Endangered Species Act

On August 12, 2019 I was awed by the number of birds and their variety of colors that I was able to photograph. Later that same day I learned that the Endangered Species Act had been seriously weakened in preparation for its total elimination. I am reminded of my grandfather who raised fancy pigeons from the early 1900s until the mid century. He immigrated from Pennsylvania to California where he must have witnessed the masses of passenger pigeons flying through the skies. What will my great grandchildren be seeing in the mid twenty first century?

It’s all about the herons around here.  The great blue heron fledglings have flown the coop and are now finding their way along the Hudson River or points east.  These little green herons must have figured out that there is safety in numbers.  The Canadian geese are thriving.
