It all started with an Eagle swooping low overhead as we got to the beach and just continued from there.
There were a trio of Heron’s playing tag at Louden Park yesterday morning! Or at least that is what it looked like!
They were perched on branches in the park on a neighbours dock. As one would swoop out of its perch another would also take off and change locations. They did this for a good half hour.
I was dizzy trying to watch and capture their antics!
Below them on Long Lake there was a lot of other kinds of activity. There were water fowl of all shapes and sizes; Common Mergansers, Hooded Mergansers, Cormorants, Mallards and Buffleheads.
Some of the Mergansers got “into it” over a fish dinner. Actually we saw the same kind of moving chase over the water a few times!
It was a very active morning at Long Lake!
