cheapdate Wrote:Our local lake has an island in the middle of it. In Spring, we have Blue Heron that form nesting colonies there. As nice as that is, I am still suspicious that they could be the culprits of the fish kill in my little pond last Spring. I lost 3 goldfish, aged 7 to 10 yrs. old. The oldest was about 13 " long. That was a sad morning. (But I'm not sure, just suspicious.)



Blue Heron
That was devastating, I remember! Didn't the culprit leave parts of the fish behind? I remember thinking that it might have been a raccoon, fox or heron. Maybe even a cat? Did you talk with a wildlife expert?
Heron raided a neighbors fish pond. They now have a fake owl and netting; I think that's working for them.

We have a "squirrel box" to feed them, we feed them raw shelled peanuts. I also make homemade suet cakes.
In promulgating your esoteric cogitations and articulating your superficial sentimentalities, amicable, philosophical and psychological observations...beware of platitude misponderosities!

This little guy looks a lot like the House Wren. Wretched little birds, they are.

Darran, do you have more bird varieties at the new home than you did at the other one ?
