Green Heron at Monticello Park, Alexandria, April 13
On Wednesday, April 13, Fred and I flushed a green heron while walking around Monticello Pond. We had a good look at it with the binos after it flew to the opposite side of the man-made pond.
There were also many mallards, Canada geese, domestic geese and what looked like Mallard hybrids???---almost all black ducks with a mallard-like head and bill, and a bit of white on the front. Quite beautiful. Will go back with my camera.
