Two Green Herons

Saturday morning, I was taking photos of a green heron at Lake Tamarack (see first photo below), trying to follow it as it flew from branch to branch along the shore.   After a while, a second green heron came onto the scene (see second photo below).  At one point, I was able to get them both in one photo (see photo above).  Click here to link to a post with more green heron photos that were taken in May.

Bent Tree Fact Sheet from 2011

This Bent Tree fact sheet is from 2011.  Other than a few slight changes (i.e. restaurant name change, different email bulletins, additions of bocce and pickleball, transponders instead of barcodes), it is still accurate and is a handy reference.

Yesterday was the final day of 2019’s National Pollinator Week.  While the power was out at our cabin, I took a morning stroll down one of Bent Tree’s trails, and came across a patch of blooming Downy False-foxglove that was literally buzzing with pollinators.  Look closely at the photo above to see a pollen basket on the bee.
