I parked the car at work, opened the door to get out and noticed a Great Egret standing on the railing of the boardwalk that runs along the Norwalk River. I closed the door, opened the car window, grabbed a few shots of the egret and watched as a guy on his phone completely clueless about his surroundings walked directly toward the impressive bird and chased it away. I was a bit miffed, but then again, let he who has never walked around on the phone completely clueless about his surroundings cast the first stone.

Oh well, not a bad shot anyway, especially with the considerable grayness of the day.

I parked the car at work this morning (Tuesday, Oct. 14), looked to my right and there’s a Great Blue Heron standing on a piling a few dozen yards away. All days should start this way.

Coincidentally, I posted last night photos of a Great Blue Heron that I took during a recent trip to northern New Hampshire. Great Blue Herons are found throughout the U.S., and beyond. So, in consecutive days, here are photos of Great Blue Herons taken from the top to the bottom of New England.

Here’s one of the heron with South Norwalk (Conn.) as the background.
