Summer Visitors--- Green Herons
It seems that every summer we have some sort of unusual critter visit us. Some stay a short while and others spend the summer with us. This years visitors is a small family of Green Herons. They nest in the oaks at the back of our lot and appear to feed at the neighboring ponds and creeks. At least so far they have left my little fish pond alone and hopefully they will continue to. This is either a female or a young male that hasn't developed his colors yet. It is the one that allowed me take 100s of photos before it flew off .
The garden is coming along and the flowers are looking better. I had to pull up all the green beans due to some sort of blight. But I'll plant more in a different spot and hope for the best .
I literally have hundreds of photos of these Green Herons. They are smaller than the Blue Heron that every one knows about and are little comics that can entertain for hours.
Here are a couple of shots of the parents after the chicks flew the nest.
Things are always happening around here :)
