Nature in unlikely places
... or the likely if you have any stories or pictures to relate.
I was hiking yesterday and didn't really see much of interest. That's OK, though really I was hoping for some critter to introduce itself like say the one in my avatar did... but no. Anyway, I arrived home about 5 and I started in making my summer blend of couscous for dinner. I looked out the kitchen window and... yes, there! It's the yellow-crowned night heron! I ran for my binoculars and my favorite bird book, of course, in order to definitively ID the bird. The description reads in part "even the movements of a stalking yellow-crown seem agonizingly slow" - yup, that's my bird! Thanks for dropping by!
