Going, Going (But Not Quite) Gone.
The pond has a strong population of herons during the summer months with three species represented. The weather is changing and now the numbers are thinning out fast. This seems to be the last Great Blue Heron.
All the mature Black-crowned Night Herons have moved south but there are still a few juveniles making the most of the masses of Blue Gills living in the pond to feast on and fatten up before they fly to warmer climes.
A heron fishing is the definition of focus.
Do not disturb!
