Green Heron at Wooton’s Landing.

After dithering a while, I decided to try Wooton this morning. It’s not always easy to choose, and sometimes I wonder if I’d have done better had I gone elsewhere.

In any case, I made a good decision this morning. I found a warbler, at last, as well as a Green Heron, which is first of the season. A couple of cooperative ducks and a muskrat were icing on the wildlife cake.
