February 15, 2016: Mom (Bebe) returns (alone) for breakfast

A blue heron as I walked to the forest

My reference photo - nothing happening

Bebe appeared around the tree on the right, ordered breakfast and retreated to the forest

feb 15 5628 ordering breakfast

I set it up for her and she returned from the forest

Bebe's back but without the kids. Wonder if all will appear tomorrow? Here she comes as I set up her breakfast table. She seems a bit anxious to eat - I suspect encouraging me to hurry up with all the preparation. I dutifully obey. (The blue bowl was just in case the kids showed up - but they did not)
