Somewhere Out There Is Supper

Great Blue Heron
Great Blue Heron

Walking along the beach front, we chanced upon this heron forlornly gazing into the distance, seemingly unconcerned with the surrounding chatter. On one side a waddling of American wigeons, heads bobbing furiously, picked through the grass ; on the other a gaggle of Canada geese rested or eyeballed two legged interlopers, while all around the seagulls squawked and remained totally belligerent. With the tide still lapping against the rocks, possibilities of an easy meal appeared remote and the heron may have been contemplating a more rewarding dining area.
