Again the Great Blue Herons lined the railroad bridge, with only a few on the shoreline. Ring Billed Gulls circled over the flowing river below the dam.
A sudden squawk alerted me to a power boat that passed under the bridge and approached the dam. When the driver cut the motor, it immediately drifted downstream, and the circling herons returned to their roosts.
He put a trolling motor over the side, and he and his companion began casting with fishing rods. These passengers on the “Bass Tracker” were undoubtedly excellent fishermen but not as good as the herons they disturbed.
Sentries line the shore.
Eyes alert, beaks at ready
Spear fish for dinner
