Is it Spring Yet?

To a heron, this looks like Old Town Buffet

This is where my head is at today- it’s cold and windy outside, and I want spring so badly I even miss weeds. Enjoy the photos, and remember- just a few more weeks!

    I know what you mean about herons & backyard ponds. A few years ago, a heron took out the entire population of a friend’s pond in one fell swoop, and another heron (we assume a different one, since it was several hours away) took out most of the population of my step dad’s pond. He was livid, as those were “mom’s fish,” that she’d tended like children. Do you know of any effective ways to keep herons out of your all-they-can-eat fish buffet?

    You know what? Stupid as it sounds, I’ve heard that a statue of a heron keeps the real ones at bay- apparently, they’re solitary critters, at least when they’re feeding.

    And not overly bright, apparently. “Dude, that guy NEVER moves. Creepy!””
