Last week, I was taking my morning stroll when I heard a commotion coming from the pond area. Since I was almost to its shore, I hurried along, fast enough to see a giant bird flapping its wings in an attempt to get the heck out of the area. I guess I startled it and it decided to leave via flight above the stream. I was in awe of the bird’s size, so I began heading back to the house to tell Laura all about what I saw. On my way back, I looked toward the driveway and was shocked to see the same bird sitting on top of my trailer. I swear the thing is over three feet tall. I ran inside, informed Laura of the situation and she was able to witness what I was talking about before the Heron flew off.
The Heron has been back at least three times since. I guess it’s eating our frogs and salamanders, which I’m not really thrilled about. I guess it’s okay, because that’s what they do. We also get to enjoy the company of the bird. It’s just that I like the amphibians as well, so I’m sort of stuck. I’ll most likely do my best to learn to love everyone.
A morning not too long ago, I saw the Heron standing upon our bench near the pond, so I quickly told Laura about it. She ran outside with her camera and was able to take a few pictures of it before it flew off. These things are very skittish. This is what she got.
Not bad, huh? I know the picture of the bird in flight is blurry, but it does give you a picture of what it looks like.
