At about 1530, watched a Great Blue Heron marching around on the ice on the frozen fire hole on Tuttle Lane in Stow across from the community gardens. It was keeping toward the edges but did venture central to the tiny pond. It didn't seem to be hunting. Kept its neck tucked to chest (maybe to keep warm?). I've seen heron there occasionally, but this is certainly the latest I've seen one there. Who knew that herons could skate.
