Subject: Re: [VTBIRD] rescue of a hummingbird
Kayaking at 3 on The Otter in Vergennes, I spotted a green heron on shoreline. Did not see if it was fishing with bait, but did see it catch a fish, swallow it and hop a few steps before deficating. I eventually spooked it and got to see it in flight. Highlight of paddle.
