Now that spring is here, I assume the battle of the Blue Heron versus my husband will resume. Last year my husband put a small goldfish pond in our yard. He was so proud of it with his decorative rocks and surrounding plants. Soon after, his fish kept disappearing and he was suspicious of the squirrels and birds. One morning I looked out our kitchen window and could not believe I was seeing this huge bird! We watched him gulp down the last of my husband's fish. Who would've thought that this bird would've been able to spot our small little pond in our even smaller yard. Someone gave us the tip to put a couple strands of fishing line across the pond and that this will stop the Blue Heron. We'll see....but I must admit, I hope the Blue Heron returns again.
