Our little friend from last year showed his or her face again. Here are photos from last year. Last year the white heron hung around the Canada-goose breeding grounds just upriver from the spillover dam.
This year our friend stood on a downed tree just downstream from the Madison Avenue bridge, completely oblivious to all the ruckus caused by the traffic.
Little critter actually seemed curious about Ellie and me.
Or maybe figured there was a certain safety in numbers.
No matter what, a regal, even serene, and beautiful bird. Wonder if there are more?
