Today's Verse

Shoutbox

Carol: Praise:  I have no cancer after undergoing a skin throat surgery  today!  Everyone was surprised - - prayers answered.   So very blessed. Aug 13 2019 5:25pm

Carol: Today is another drive to the VA.  We have found a little part that is not on the fast and furious freeway.  Whoever thinks that growth in a city is a good thing is wrong.  Two grands came for an overnight and their visits mean so much to us.  /b] Aug 07 2019 10:46am

Carol: I hope everyone is feeling well and happy.  Aug 07 2019 10:42am

JudyB: I have posted a new month! Aug 02 2019 8:05pm

Carol: Good Day - I see John B is online right now. John and Judy, I do hope you are not in the seriously hot temperatures.  I is really a scorcher today about 100 degrees.  Praying for relief. Jul 19 2019 10:31am

JudyB: Take care in the heat, try to stay cool! Jul 05 2019 11:36am

Carol: Jane:  Super nice to see you posting.  Jun 26 2019 6:40pm

Jane Walker: Hi everyone!  I just want y'all to know that I'm here and will, one day, be up to posting again.  things have been getting in the way, is all Jun 25 2019 4:45pm

Janet: This is a great day to praise the Lord! Jun 24 2019 2:31pm

Oldiesmann: Just now realized I didn't have this set up properly... Only guests and regular users could see it and nobody could post shouts. Should be fixed now! Jun 22 2019 8:00pm

Herons are fascinating birds to see in flight...

This picture of the Heron was taken in Lancashire.

I was told the  grey heron population has reached about 750 in Lancashire.

It will expand if clicked on to a larger picture.

Well, we may have lost our Concorde up in our sky's but, this is the closest we can ever get now...such a gracious looking bird when in flight...

It is from the same family as Egrets and Bitterns

This is a Purple Heron, usually found in Africa, Asia and sometimes in Europe

If you look below the Heron you will see a Penguin!


Not sure how I attached two images!

Jacqueline

Ahh yes I see it...I know a lady who just simply loves Penguins, she has been hospitalised for most part of this year, not on our forum but our sister forum... most of our forum members know who I am referring to...this photo would have sure cheered her up...So now, every time I see a penguin I am thinking of her and imagine seeing a smile on her face.....

Rather, a Heron in the morning.   It is a great blue heron.

We have night herons in Texas,



but no "morning herons" as such.

This photo of a Grey Heron was taken in Lee Valley Park in the United Kingdom.





Jacqueline

Think the last Heron I spotted was at the Rickmansworth Aquadrome UK...if I remember around one of the many lakes that lead off from the main lake, they had a Heron look-out cabin...

One of the best places to see grey herons is on Northward Hill, which overlooks the Thames Marshes in the United Kingdom.

I was informed there are over 100 pairs of grey herons roosting in the trees on the RSPB reserve on Northward Hill.

By the way, the RSPB is the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds
