You don’t have to go to the shore to see giant wading birds. We have them right here in our woods!
The Great Blue Heron seems to be at home in even the smallest pond damned along the streams, as long as he can find fish. Or frogs, snakes crayfish and…yes, sadly enough, rodents.
Luckily this old squirrel is a bit well-padded, I don’t think I’d fit down his gullet too well.
