This afternoon I stopped by Haven Road while waiting to pick up our dinner. There has been little happening here lately with the high temps and humidity. Today however, it was rather active. Three Great Blue Herons were foraging along the channel just off Haven Road. As I watched them, two Wood Ducks began swimming around. The family of Eastern Kingbirds were actively flycatching over the channel as well. As I watched all the goings on, a family of Common Gallinules swam out into the channel. An adult and two chicks were foraging in the Lily Pads. As I watched, the adult caught what appeared to be a small fish. It was wiggling and the adult took off with it, a chick chasing after it. When they came back into the channel to join the other chick, two adults entered with a total of three chicks. The Lily Pads were between them, so I couldn’t get a shot of all five. It was nice to see these chicks, my first this year.
