Patient Heron on the Hunt

I visited Medford this week to try to find some eagles at Mystic Lakes Park since my Facebook memories indicated that we’d seen some there a year ago. Although I did see an eagle in flight from a distance, I spent most of my time watching this heron patiently hunting for its lunch. Over the course of the hour I watched it, this heron did not successfully catch his prey for nearly the whole hour, but I was rewarded just as I was starting to think about giving up the ghost. The heron seemed to enjoy a hearty meal on this beautiful fall day.
