The Green-backed Heron Returns

Summer, 2016

The summer is mostly gone and I've not seen the green-backed heron. I know they are rare, but one has been hanging around the backwater for the last few summers, and I keep hoping it will return. Then a few of my neighbors say they have seen it. I watch for it when I take my swims circumnavigating the moorage. At last, I spot it and it doesn't fly away as I swim past. Then one day when I am walking home I see it on the backwater shore behind the Hekkers' tenderhouse.
