“I was thinking, it’s Sunday, and it’s the first nice day in weeks. We could get the canoe out and go out on the lake and read our twitter feeds.”

“Oh, no. It’s much too nice of a day for that. I’d think I’d really rather look at Instagram.”

Gray Heron

March 8, 2021

The gray herons are back for the summer, building nests. There is a siege of herons (yes, I had to look it up) within walking distance of my apartment, so that’s where I’ll be when I have time, over the next couple of weeks. I have to get them before the leaves hide them.

This one would not cooperate. You see that twig hiding his right eye? After a few shots he moved his head so that the twig covered his left eye.

This one was much more cooperative.

Es gingen Reiher auf eine Feier,

Und brachten mit sich Reihereier.

Schon wieder die alte Leiher,

sagte ein anderer Reiher,

Bringt doch mal was anderes,

Als immer Reihereier.

Also Reihereier sind doch net deier,

Darum bringen wir immer Reihereier

zu Feier,

sagt der schwäbisches Reiher.
