"Wendy, Wendy, come here quick!" was what I heard from my co-worker just around the corner in the visitor center lobby. You get a good view of our pond from out there, and she had seen something she'd never seen before.
I was excited too, because although they are pretty common in the area, Great Blue Herons don't usually make our pond a stopping location. I think it may have something to do with our pond being the only open water in the county other than the Provo River. The two main reservoirs in the area are still frozen over. I wonder where the Osprey are hunting.
