There was a chill in the air due to a cold front band going through, but it didn't dissuade some
from making an appearance, like the Little Blue Heron.  I have never seen this bird at the lake,
but it is well within its range.  Our ducks are still holding over, and a couple of breeding Great Egrets are in the area.  There is much more to come, as migration is just beginning.  There will be a lot
more to see, so dust off that copy of your birding guide, and get ready to travel in my wake.
