A great blue heron having lunch

We often see great blue herons stopping by the ponds. Today, a group of SC Master Naturalists were lucky enough to see one nab a small fish in the Duck Pond, poke at it, and then, gulp!

On a cold rainy day, we were experiencing nature in the Garden, as we mused about holly berry 'tastiness', coral honeysuckle and hummingbirds, the nature of early flowering trees and shrubs, and talked about plants. We spent a good bit of the morning inside in the Nature Center, but then ventured forth for a loop around the Duck Pond.

I was pleased that the Duck Pond sign (with the nature note) had an observation to match!
