Shrimp...it's what's for dinner! Upon further review (thanks to my neighbor and fellow blogger Ernie), I have determined this fisherman (shown plunging yesterday) is
a little blue heron sporting its breeding colors. an unknown bird. But it is a bird! Honestly, there are so many different herons and egrets here...I give up trying to identify this one. On a different note, for those of you who like Christmas music, I encourage you to visit Ernie's blog ErnieNotBert. He collects old vinyl Christmas records throughout the year, then rips them, scans the covers and shares them on his blog. It's a great way to find little known renditions of holiday classics. One of my favorite shares from last year is an album of Christmas songs from an Irish pub. Good stuff!
