Encountering a Great Blue Heron on Halloween

Halloween Heron
What a perfect apparition for Halloween Day! Tiedeman's Pond, Middleton, Oct. 31, 2010.

We were out for a Halloween afternoon walk today, and I was surprised to see this Great Blue Heron. It's been almost two weeks since I uploaded a heron photo. I would have thought they would be gone by now, especially after the huge wind storm we had a few days ago, but they don't yet seem to have lost their attachment to the Madison area -- we saw several at Tiedeman's Pond this afternoon, just as the trick-or-treaters were coming out. Urban herons -- completely within the Madison and Middleton city limits.
