This is for Thursday doors, though today is Friday. I took this from one of the docks down town, looking back. The buildings are from the late 1800s and many have elaborate decoration on the street side and then are brick on the water side. The tide is quite far out in this shot, with the pilings and beach and barnacles exposed. These are old doors for our area.
Oh, there! This is a yellow crowned night heron. I also photographed a juvenile along Riverwalk, but this adult was in the busy section at 5 pm. About 30 feet up in a tree, but not otherwise hidden. There are ducks and pigeons and sparrows along Riverwalk, but it seems that the herons are thriving too. Bravo for this strip of nature that runs through the city like an oasis, winding among the streets.
Another angle, but the trees are in the way.
Oh! We need a better view! Turn, bird! I can’t wade out into the river here!
Turning a little….
Near the top of the previous post, in the tree, near the roof line of the building behind. A bird and not a very small bird. Look, feathers, who is it?
The trees along the Riverwalk are gorgeous and cooling and soothing. This is from two evenings ago, busy and noisy at the end of the day…
…wait. Do you see a bird?
This is for Thursday doors. In San Antonio, Texas, a fire escape door in the side of the building. Or it’s a window onto a fire escape. And the window in front and all the angles of this building on the Riverwalk.
