Green Heron?

I think this is a juvenile Green Heron. I came up on in walking along the trail at the Heritage Shores Nature Preserve in North Myrtle Beach last week.

Today's Visitors

I usually miss the goldfinch, he's usually very shy and darts away as soon as I come outside.

Way Behind

Like most of the last few summers, I've been very busy...but I've also been taking a lot more photos than in the past. Here is a hawk that landed on the porch of the beach house...a mere 20ft or so from me...and I still can't tell for sure what kind it is. Maybe a Cooper's Hawk?

My Neighbors

I will miss some of them. Said hello to a few this morning on my walk around the lake.

Snow and Ice

Went out around the lake after last night's snow and ice...took a lot of photos but a couple were just fortuitous.

I was taking the below photo of a Black-crowned Night Heron that frequents the lake, when I must have startled the Great Blue Heron that also frequents that area. The Great Blue flew right up in front and away from me and I fired off a few shots, two that came out pretty good.

Along the Little Patuxent

Yes, I am still here. I expect to be blogging more in another couple months...

In the meantime, a few weeks back I wandered up the Savage Mill Trail. So short and flat it hardly qualifies as a hike, but I did take a few photos.
