The blue heron is back
Coming in for a landing. Spotted the blue heron in our backyard
A beautiful October day so we headed to Blackwater Wildlife Refuge
We were lucky enough to spot this blue heron on our afternoon walk. This is his serious look
I’m watching you.
I finally got the right spot. It’s amazing how they can twist their neck around
We decided to head to Blackwater Wildlife Refuge. The refuge is a waterfowl sanctuary for birds migrating along the critical migration highway. When we got there we discovered that a major part of the refuge was closed for the day for hunting. But we did spot these two blue herons. The volunteer told us that because it’s been so warm that it will probably be late November before most of the waterfowl arrive – so will have to go back next month
