Bird of the Day

Black-crowned night heron. This photo is from a website and was obviously taken by a professional.

Below is my photo taken on my walk this morning. Think of it as a "Where's Waldo?" exercise. The marking above the beak is the give-away. The granddaughter did the i.d.-ing with the Audubon bird app on the iPad. We saw a second bird very much like this one--but not exactly. One is a male, the other a female, but they're both black-crowned night herons.

We don't have that heron. What a beautiful bird!
I love my Audubon phone app.

Hayy Denise!

You have a beautiful home. I am utterly envious. May you grow beautiful memories in your beautiful home. I hope more and more and more of your love ones, your friends and kin will make their way there. Undoubtedly it is blessed. Undoubtedly you are blessed!

Love your walks and musings about life, animals, people and family.
