Photos: Three cheers for the red-tailed hawk, the great white egret and the blue heron

These local Bloomington birds were photographed over the course of the last year.

Fourth of July parade flyover

Three birds
Photographically frozen in flight
One red, one blue, one white
Hawk, heron and great egret
They could not  know they made a flag
And if they did, they would not brag
Because the human course of events
Does not hold nature in suspense

Bloomington’s Fourth of July parade starts at 10 a.m. today in downtown. So be there or B Square!
