The weather is “unsettled” this weekend, which can sometimes bring in good birds, so I decided to try Schoolhouse Pond for vagrants. Sandy Point would have been my first choice, but it’s Labor Day weekend and bound to be very crowded.
I made the right choice. I chatted with some fishermen for a while, and birds were continually flying in, which is always a good sign.
I noticed a distant bird I couldn’t ID, so I walked to the other end of the pond and saw it was a juvenile little Blue Heron, a bird I don’t see often. Eventually it moved much closer and gave me some good looks.
A good morning, indeed, and I may go back tomorrow.
