A walk down Hammock Hills Nature Trail is always a delightful way to spend part of an afternoon. Not long ago I was standing on the platform overlooking the Sound when I noticed three egrets wading along the edge of a tidal creek. The glare on the camera display made it difficult to frame a photo, but I did get a shot of two of the birds.
