April 19 at Green Lake

Good Friday, April 19 at Green Lake ...
As it looked at the start of today's walk around

Linking up today with Skywatch Friday

As usual, the Blue Heron is looking for breakfast.

I believe it is a Red-winged Blackbird annoying the Heron.
The Blackbird swept down to the Heron several times.
I stopped for a couple minutes to see if I could capture this.
Way too much movement but you get the idea.

Rain at times during today's walk but mostly dry.
Comfortable too.

  10. I wonder if the heron was too close to the blackbird's nest. I am surprised that they don't get along better. :-)
