Description

Another small bird chased it into the door. I put it in a box with a towel and kept it quiet. At first it was breathing heavily then it's breathing was normal. I opened the lid and he hopped onto the box and flew a few feet away onto the patio, then he moved to a shady corner with tomato plant overhanging. Later he was hopping around the planters scratching for food.

3 Juvies seen today. Adult seen on previous observations, was not seen today.
One watched intently as children threw bread to the ducks/geese/turtles. This one picked up a stick, dropped it in the water, picked it up again, dropped it. I have heard of green herons using tools to fish, maybe that is what he was doing. He is standing on a 'bridge' made of a log, with just a little water flowing over it into a lower section of the 'creek'.

This plant started growing in one of my pots. I did not plant it, but decided to keep it because I thought it was fascinating. It is now somewhere between 6 and 7 feet tall and still growing!
