Magnificence in Flight

heronsOn my way to the Wethersfield windmills this past weekend I watched a bird with a huge wingspan take off from trees just to my right and disappear past the tree line.  I estimate its wingspan was 6 feet.  It looked a lot like a heron only with a shorter beak.  It was bigger and thinner than the hawks we have around here, and had that S-curved neck that herons have when they fly.  But I don’t think it was a heron.  It wasn’t an eagle or an owl or a crane, either.

Whatever it was, It was beautiful and I am in awe of these magnificent creatures.
