I saw a heron yesterday. Dear Husband and I went to the Farmer's Market at O-dark-thirty yesterday morning. I was surprised that DH was willing to get up so early, but he went with me to carry things. I wanted to see if I could pick up raw honey to use on my colds this winter, and I couldn't leave without picking up some unusual pumpkins to add to my collection. DH encouraged me to pick up 4 green peppers for stuffed green peppers, and a head of cauliflower.
We were on our way home, and I saw a very large heron in one of the least welcoming retention ponds. He was wading next to a line of cat tails, intent on breakfast.
So, as of 10-27-12 there was still at least one heron in the area! I stand corrected.
