Stopped to take some photos of the floating condos (I'll use them tomorrow) and as I was walking back on the dock there was this herron - just standing there. I walked up to about five feet from him before he decided to fly. He, of course, was looking for brunch.
We used to have them come to the pond (before we turned into the desert southeast and the pond dried up) almost daily. Definitely didn't like them at the pond - they can eat an incredible amount of fish, and they're very good at catching them.
