This Black Crowned Night Heron was poking around outside the dock. It’s one of the more unusaul birds that has been showing up more and more in the past few years. I have no idea why we’ve suddenly gotten this influx of herons and egrets but it is interesting.
Steve Borichevsky and Jim Barber are two local guys who go crazy for birds and take incredible pictures of them. I wonder what it is about bird watching that gets those guys so riled up. I’ll have to ask them if it’s the sighting of a rare bird, the challenge of photographing it or something else that fascinates them so.
