First is an apology for those on the Wild Bird Wednesday meme.
Due to reasons beyond my control, I was not able to visit any of your wonderful blogs this past week.
This post is dedicated to my dear friend and neighbor Judy Bartram and her family.
You see her sister went missing 2 weeks ago today.
She was 49 and she made a poor choice.
An arrest has been made, and her body recovered, as of yesterday.
Now the long wait for healing, if that can ever even fully happen begins.
Several years ago, I met Judy and her husby, when I was looking for the nest of the Red-Shouldered Hawks.
They are really such very kind, good people.
Their family who lives in Ohio, have already dealt with tremendous loss and grief and now this.
Please remember them this week~
The Green Heron images, along with the Muskrat were taken at Draut Park, where the city is allowing the lake to dry up, leaving the waterbirds no longer a place to call home.
Hopefully they can take up residence at the nearby Beargrass Creek~
Remember to double click on the first image, to view a larger slide show presentation after you have read the narratives~
I will be linking up with Judith for:
The Great Blue Heron images just above and the one taken with the wonderful Autumn foliage were taken at Crystal Lake.
There was one at each end of the lake on the day I took them~
The Great Blue Heron images below, were taken at the Anchorage Trail~

Have a Happy week and stay always close to those that you love~
