heron 5:58 over Keiser Blvd. heading east and south it was a jumbo jet sized heron. I was driving the Sleepymobile to work. During the course of the business day Friday, happened to talk to a man who was carrying around a small framed photograph. The picture features a heron. The heron stands on an evergreen trees amid many evergreens trees such as hemlock or pine. The bird is not entirely welcome.
“No one will believe me,” says the man. “That I have this bird in my garden. So, I carry a picture of it.”
The heron, a spectacular sight in the suburban songbird style garden, perches close to his garden pond. The pond contains koi. The man is pleased to say he shoots at the bird with a bebe gun to keep it from eating the fish that swim in the pond.
