Great Blue Herons DO Speak

056There are more than 200 forest fires in southern BC right now.

Dad and Joan don’t think they are in any danger of evacuations, but when there is a fire map shown on TV it looks like the whole southern half of the province is in flames. When I see that, I worry.

Out on the step early this morning with my notebook on my lap and my coffee mug and pot-diggin’ dog at my side, I heard a loud sqwawking above the trees to the south. It was a great blue heron trying to escape the in-flight attacks of a wee redwinged blackbird! Now there’s a sound I’d never heard before.
