Short on time today, and with the threat of potentially severe weather ahead this afternoon, I hurried down to the watering hole (marina) early to check out the scene. The black-crowned night heron was on duty. Did I mention that these guys stand perfectly still at water’s edge, waiting for unsuspecting prey to cross their path. They will spear it, reorient it and swallow it head first. Requires patience, something I’m especially short on today.
