A first for me...
Yellow Crowned Night Heron?  
(I hope I have that right!)

  5. #1, I would print and frame, so lovely, peaceful, beautiful colours, how can nature give us this so often, and free of any charge, other than to be there at the right time ?

  26. I hope the water goes down quickly and it doesn't do much damage. Take care, and see you when I return from vacation in three weeks.

  27. Gosh, what a flood! The Heron looks young, but then I've never seen anything but the great blue heron.

    ReplyDelete
  28. We too have low spots where it seasonly floods. Your playground area must be in a low spot too. I like the bird.

    ReplyDelete
  29. This seems like a gentle little flood where the river has just backed up.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Gotta love a dog that enjoys fishing. Wow, you really have had the rain. Even our dry creek beds are full these days. Wish we could send some of this out west.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Rain and more rain for you! It's snowing hard here - at least not flooding.

    ReplyDelete
  32. It just seems to have rained about everywhere. Too much so. I have seen the blue heron but not one of the yellow crowned. Interesting.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Fishing in the playground - love the concept!

  36. I think you're right with your ID Terri. And I thought it was only the UK that had lots of rain!

  37. A flood and the Heron, mighty fine. Beautiful images.

    ReplyDelete
  38. We have the very same here in my neck of the woods. New lakes popping up everywhere we go.

    Yep, the first sighting of any bird is wonderful...and I do believe you're right in it being a YCN Heron.

    Congrats.

  64. Your ID looks just right to me. And at least the heron likes all the water. Beautiful pictures in an eerie sort of way. Gosh, I had no idea you had such awful flooding. Hope it recedes soon, those trees are drowning!

    ReplyDelete
  65. YIKES!!! Can't we share the rains with California???
