Fish With Mud Sauce
Yesterday afternoon I was watching this great blue heron fishing in a shallow pool of water at the edge of the salt marsh.
The heron was staring into the water, and I was staring at the heron. I really didn’t think he was going to catch anything, the water did not look to me like there was anything swimming around so I figured he was wasting his time. At about that moment was when he struck and plucked out a nice fish, which immediately proved which of the two of us knew what we were doing.
After catching the fish the heron walked over to land where he promptly dropped the fish in the mud. I know they don’t normally like to eat muddy fish so I expected him to wash it off which he did, but he did not put much effort into cleaning. He must have been really hungry because after a very quick rinse, the great blue gobbled down the fish mud and all!
