There was a Green heron at Green pond today next to a Great egret. The green heron was on the above water part of a mostly submerged tree. It was snagging these little 3/4" minnows from the pond while I watched it from 25 feet away.
Later I rolled through that beautiful valley along Raubsville road. A common nighthawk was energetically flying above the cornfields not far from the farm stand . First that I've seen one this year. What cool bird they are!
