On a lovely May afternoon during a visit to our favorite local wetland, a little Pond Drama ensued:

• Great Blue Heron lands at lake edge to go fishing.

• Heron gets relentlessly mobbed by nesting Red-winged Blackbirds.

• After moving to several different locations to avoid attack (unsuccessfully), Heron flies off in raucous protest. Imagine a swearing Pterodactyl!

Sometimes the neighbors can be SO annoying!!
