Stay Warm, Great Blue
My youngest son and I bundled up and headed out this afternoon for a walk along Village Commons Drive in Matteson, Illinois. The wind chills almost had us turning around once we got to the top of the bridge over I-57, but thankfully we kept walking.
Once we crossed I-57, I spotted a great blue heron in the marshy area next to the road. With great lighting and a good vantage point, It was so much fun watching this giant bird fly by in grand attempts to put more space between us.I figured all of the great blue herons would be south by now. I hope this one stays warm, but I am glad I got to see it today!
