MacKenzie Marsh Collage

 

MacKenzie Marsh collage

One day last week my husband and I took a little walk in the MacKenzie Marsh, a special wetland in the town of Aurora near us.   I had heard members of my camera club talk about the birds they found there but I had not had the opportunity to visit.   Hubby surprised me by asking to stop by and have a look at it.  He is still using a walker to get around but is becoming a little more stable on his feet.  This was a big feat for him. We managed to get only to the little bridge at the bottom of the hill but in the almost dried up pond we saw some ducks, a killdeer and a preening blue heron. Hopefully we will be able to visit again.
