“See Ya Later Pal”
Earlier this week a great blue heron takes off across the salt marsh leaving his friend behind to fish alone.
I suppose the grass is always greener. Or… in this particular situation, the oysters and marsh mud are browner.
In any case, taking a look at the bright blue lores that are beginning to be displayed on this heron’s face means he is entering into breeding condition. So the tendency and instinct to wander are getting stronger every day.
