This fellow tried to go fishing in our lake today, but if you look at the left of the photo, you'll see a blackbird coming to drive him away. Pretty soon there were several blackbirds dive-bombing Mr. Heron. He gave up and flapped away.
And actually, the herons will take tiny ducklings if they can’t get fish. So these six little ones are safe for the moment. Sadly, there were 10 of them yesterday.
