Opinion: Egrets grateful to taxpayers

Early this summer on the Vergennes/Monkton Road I saw not one but five snowy egrets.
I saw them feeding in front of the new salamander crossing. Putting my binoculars on them I saw they were gorging themselves on salamanders. On their behalf I want to thank the environmentalist who erected the crossing.
I heard there were 81 salamanders counted at the crossing. Not bad cost effectiveness at forty-thousand dollars each.
