So I was the Pond… it’s a nice pond. Lots of birds for a little pond. And so the question is … can two herons be at the same pond? The answer is after a little chasing … is yes if one is in a tree. The Heron in the pond grab a snack the other in the tree was still waiting. Yep. I gotta carry the bigger camera
So I went to mass late. And stopped by the pond. I liken this pond to motel 6; not fancy but comfortable. Anyway it was near sunset and wouldn’t you know I got bit by mosquitoes! Two in the face (near the edge of the temple and a cheek) and my left wrist. Amazing! But the birds were coming in to settle in.
So I decided to go the pond before the 4 of July fireworks. It was rainy. But the pond was peaceful as you can see until …
We had a rumble in the pond … one more there was one Heron and then suddenly another one showed up. Herons are territorial and they began to fight. They trapped a duck and then the duck got feisty. Finally they rolled over a pair of geese and the geese were not have any of and swung around and they went into fight mode. It times like these when I wished I had better gear. But wow! It lasted for five minutes. No geese or duck harmed that I can tell. And only one heron left in the pond. The other flew away.
