Up a tree

I love Great Blue Herons. We have a lot. I love them best in trees, because they still look strange to me in trees. They will perch right on the top of our tall Pacific Northwest trees and look like peculiar Christmas tree toppers. Alien angels. Their bones are lighter than ours, so they can stand on a limb that would not hold me or you.

    We have a lot of herons, too, but ours stay mostly down at the port with the gulls and pelicans. I would love to see one of ours in a tree.
