With our summer heat, the water in the ponds at the Row River Nature Park is very low. I know from our dog walks down there that the Canada geese, coots, and other paddling birds have pretty much disappeared, while the wading birds are more noticeable.
The other morning I loaded up my camera and went down to the ponds to see what I could see. Turns out, I saw a lot of frog eating!
While this bird, a different juvenile green heron, pretty much caught its frog then swallowed it, before setting out to look for another.
I am always amazed at the wildlife we have seen at the Nature Park over the years. Many people know this area as the “fishing ponds” or just “the ponds.” But whatever you call it, it is an amazing park to have within our city limits.
