The evening that the pond was surprisingly crowded

We took a nice stroll around the pond, and I'm so glad we did - everyone was there!  First two adult black-crowned night herons, and then this juvenile.

 And the wood duck!  And another juvenile!  And then this great egret!  It was hunting, cocking its head way to the side.  Awesome!

 And this spotted sandpiper was on the mudflat.  It actually started out where the night herons often hang out, and I got to see it fly over to the mudflat.

 It was really quite a stroll!  :-)
