Great Blue Heron.This bird had been hanging out in Green-Wood deep into the autumn. It had got quite used to passersby, in fact several people were concerned about its condition because it was “just standing there.” I last saw it 11/25, when I took these pictures; I haven’t seen it the last two weekends. Perhaps the bird fled after hearing about Trump’s EPA pick, a professional science-denier who, curiously, looks like another dead fish of an ideologue, James G. Watt. He was Reagan’s wrecker at Interior.
