Harry the Heron


This is Harry, a great blue heron which visits Escondido Village every year. Yesterday Harry landed on a roof and started making a lot of noise -- this is his ferocious face.

Actually, I don't know if it is always Harry (because sadly all herons look alike) but every spring herons appear all over EV. Last year it was a great thrill when a heron caught and ate a gopher right in front of many of our courtyard children.

I saw a heron in between Escondido building 35 and 36 this morning. He ate a gopher also - it could have been Harry.
