I was out to the park this morning, as is my way, and there were two other people there! So, of course, I totally jumped them before they could jump me, now that I know how dangerous the rural parks are. Okay, not really. I said hi to one and the other one and I chatted about dogs for a minute.
I thought I saw a whooping crane, but whooping cranes are apparently white. But this guy was standing right by the sign! Clearly, he was a Whooping Crane Impostor, trying to lure idiots like me astray. Ha, Whooping Crane Impostor would totally be a great name for a band, or a blog.
I believe that’s a great blue heron. Despite the name, they’re kind of a grey-blue color (not kingfisher blue or anything bright).
