Cattle egrets are a lot of fun to have around. Once they get used to you and your schedule of mowing, you can rest assured they will devotedly follow you around your yard or your field catching and eating any insects that hop out of your way while you mow. They are one of the few things I miss about living in Louisiana.

Here the robins and starlings do the same. I once wrote a post, "how a lawnmower is like a bison."

Re: Yes...

Where I am now, it's the barn swallows that follow me around.
I even had one barn swallow who parked her babies on the overhead electrical cable so that she could feed them quickly while I mowed.
She didn't even land-she hovered while she fed them!
