Keep Calm…and Watch Herons.

Today I’m keeping it simple. April has been very hectic for me, so I’m working on trying to regroup and de-stress. So tonight  I’m taking a break from informational posts and sharing some lovely birds I saw. The following pictures were taken this evening while walking around Smithville Park with my mom and sister. There are at least 3 resident Great Blue Herons at the lake and they were all out enjoying the sunshine and beautiful weather. We also saw some pretty dogwood trees in bloom. These herons are a nice reminder for me to slow down, appreciate the beauty of nature, and focus on the simple things. If you are ever stressed I suggest you go find some herons and watch them be the amazing creatures they are. Works for me! Enjoy! 🙂

I am an avid birder, teacher, and nature lover. I primarily go birding in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, but love to travel. I am currently a biology student with interests in conservation biology, ornithology, and environmental sciences. My dream is to go birding in all 50 states.
