A quick stop by the marina this morning proved that green herons rule. There were three stationed along the bulkhead, joined by a yellow-crowned night heron, a cormorant, and a great white egret. A stop at the boat ramp yielded a new find–a pair of Sandwich Terns. These terns are the only ones in the tern family that have a black bill with yellow tip. Don’t know if they were lost, or just exploring.
Activity on the peninsula is still focused around the outer bank. I spotted an ibis on the far South Shore Harbor shoreline across from the peninsula–a bit out of range for my camera’s zoom. A Great Blue Heron was also working the exposed shoreline along the creek.
Green Thought:You must not know too much, or be too precise or scientific about birds and trees and flowers and water-craft; a certain free margin, and even vagueness – perhaps ignorance, credulity – helps your enjoyment of these things… ~ Walt Whitman
