Another Warbler

Today, I saw an American Redstart. It’s another tiny little warbler. First I noticed the male, and then a few minutes later a little gray bird caught my attention. I didn’t know what it was, so I snapped a picture. I believe it’s the female.

At the edge of the lake, I saw a sizable bird that resembled a heron but was not one of the herons I know. Looking it up, I found out it was a Black-crowned Night Heron.

The adult continued to hop forward and the babies followed making quite a noise. The adult appeared to be showing the young ones how to forage for themselves. It was very cute.

      Why, thank-you.

      How have you been?

      • OK. Just me and my dog, Kassey, hanging out watching movies and reading books all day. Slow life, but I like it. How are you doing?

        I’ve been doing well. I’ve been spending a lot of time in the park. Well, I guess that much is obvious. But I saw some geese one day literally feathering their nest and the next day they had eggs. I’ve been going back to check up on them from time to time.
