Why do birds fly south for the winter?

It’s quicker than driving.

Snowy Egrets

Day 278 / 365

Why did the Snowy Egret fly away when they get scared?

Because it didn’t want to run away like a chicken.

Interesting Fact: There is evidence that a pair of Snowy Egrets cannot recognize each other except at the nest. Even there, a bird arriving to relieve its mate must perform an elaborate greeting ceremony in order to avoid being attacked as an intruder.

One good turn deserves another.

Interesting Fact: Earlier, the screw had been described by the Greek mathematician Archytas of Tarentum (428–350 BC).

Metal screws used as fasteners were rare in Europe before the 15th century, if known at all. ( https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Screw )

Great Blue Heron

Day 273 / 365

What holiday is observed by all birds?

Feather’s Day!

Interesting Fact: Great Blue Herons aren’t likely to visit a typical backyard. However, they are sometimes unwelcome visitors to yards that include fish ponds. A length of drain pipe placed in the pond can provide fish with a place to hide from feeding herons. Herons, like most of our birds, are legally protected by the Migratory Bird Treaty Act.
