Big Bird, Little Boat

One night as we went out for dinner we were treated to an odd sight: a great blue heron (Ardea herodias) standing in a tiny dinghy. Seeing a bird roost on a boat is not uncommon, but this is the first time we’ve seen a bird so big on a boat so small. Great blue herons are apparently not very common around here, and it was funny to watch him keep his balance on the boat as it rocked back and forth.
