Great Blue Heron, that's what we saw this morning. There is a little open water at the mouth of a brook that feeds into our lake and the Great Blue Heron was trying to land in the open water. Just a tad too early. It's understandable that this bird would be testing to see if its feeding grounds were available. We suggest it come back in a week. We always wonder about these early arrivals who come to their breeding areas and find there is just too much snow and ice still here. They come and then often we don't see them for awhile. Do they reverse migrate for a spell? One would hope so.
