For some reason I am fascinated with herons,
they eat my gold fish in the Koi pond.
We have given up on Koi.
Just too expensive a fish food.
We now rely on free gold fish.
The birds are huge,
they land on the roof and
hop down to have a meal or two.
They must stand 4 ft tall.
A funny thing happen this spring.
A pair of barn swallows nested in the
wood duck box and when a heron landed to feed.
The swallows dive bombed the heron until
he flew away.
I think they kept him away enough that the
small koi pond was left alone.
Fun watching nature.
