From the Bridge (part two)

Juvenile Green Heron, Lake Needwood, Rockville, MD

Continuing with the baby series, although now we are really getting into juvenile birds. These birds are on their own, but not quite fully with their adult plumage. Last time, I highlighted a juvenile black capped night heron we spotted from a bridge that crosses a marshy part of a lake. At the same time, off the other side of the bridge, was this lovely creature! My friend immediately said she thought it was a green heron. I said, “naaa, it is too small; it must be something else.” It was a little farther away than the night heron, so it was pretty easy to snap a few photos without disturbing him or her.

Later, once home, I began my online search to narrow down what this bird could be. Don’t you know, it turned out to be a green heron after all! Amy knew all along and it would have saved some time if I’d just trusted her. I’m glad she’s a good friend and doesn’t take it personally when I don’t always agree. Once in awhile, I am the one who is right, but at least when it comes to birds, she is usually the one who knows and I’m good with that!

In this crazy world, we need to surround ourselves with good people we can trust. It is high time for us to show kindness and acceptance of others, human or otherwise, even when it is hard. Isn’t that what we want from others? This is my goal, with God’s help: To show love and kindness to others regardless of how “deserving” they are. I fail miserably in this area quite a lot, but commit to persist in trying to do the right thing.

“This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. But whoever lives by the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done has been done in the sight of God.” John 3:19 & 21

Have a blessed day!!!

  1. It was such a speacial day to see the Juvenile Black Crowned Night Heron and the Green Heron. It’s fun to learn about birds with you and Liz. What a blessing! And I am always happy to discuss the birds! I’m glad we can discuss many things with kindness an grace.
