To paraphrase Groucho Marx, the other morning I shot this great blue heron in my pajamas….
I first visited this house about 13 years ago; and looked out the window & saw this view:
It was summer, not the early spring of that photo – but on the riverbank is a pole standing upright – and on it at that time was a kingfisher. Found one there the other day too
Today my wife called down from upstairs, “there’s an egret in the river!” – so I bopped my head out the window, and all I could see was a yellowlegs – I can never tell if they’re greater or lesser yellowlegs…
So I kept yelling upstairs, “it’s not an egret – it’s a shorebird” …then the egret strode into view.
It was here all day; even stayed for lunch
Another view (I took all these pictures, got to do something with them)
Every year I re-tape the stick to the pole that’s driven into the bank.
I’ll get back to posting some woodsy stuff. I have lots of ideas lately just not much time. Off to Roy’s soon, & there’s always something going on there.
