This morning it was nice enough to read on the dock. The water is still cold so not many pond critters are stirring yet, just a few bullfrogs. Birds on the other hand are everywhere. And today I got to add a new bird to my life list. Two Green Herons came to the pond and I have never seen one before -- at least not since starting the list sometime in the 1980s. Naturally I had no camera, sadder yet because they were so close to me and they stayed for maybe 10 minutes, one on each side of the pond. But this picture is an exact image of the birds I saw today.
