Do you ever wonder what a bird might be doing or thinking? I was wandering along a wooded trail near the shoreline, when something up in the midst of the trees, caught my eye.
I have seen the Great Blue Heron stand like a statue for ages in and around water, but this one was moving its head frequently. I suppose from such a height there is much to catch its interest. I wonder if they nest there in the spring.
I carry on along the trail and spy a seagull eyeing something that seems rather unappealing. I wonder if it thought so, too ~ although how could anything be more unpleasant than swallowing starfish whole?
While I wander, I find a little spot to sit and wonder some more.
I clamber over rocky crags to peer into tidal pools, and wonder at the variety and richness of life swirling inside.
I wend my way back along the trail; a shimmer of blue catches my eye!
Great blue herons eat small fish, swallowing them head first...and frogs, salamanders, snakes, lizards, shellfish, small birds, rodents, grasshoppers, and other insects such as dragonflies.
I wonder if the Great Blue Heron is looking for the little blue dragonfly!
