Well, just now I was upstairs organizing the spare bedroom and Jackson went ballistic downstairs. Barking and growling and making so much noise! I yelled at him to be quiet, thinking it was just a dog walking by. Neither he nor Ava bark very much and when they do, they usually quiet down when we tell them to. Well, this time, he just kept barking and barking.
I ran downstairs, expecting him to be by the front door watching the dogs, and he was at the back door. I looked outside and the heron was walking around our backyard!! It was so cool - man, he's tall! I ran upstairs to get the phone and by the time I got back downstairs he was headed toward the trees.
Not sure if you can see anything in this video, but thought I'd try to share, anyway. It was just so cool! (he's right in the middle, among the trees. sorry about the barking dogs in the background)
We actually have a lot of wildlife around our area. Deer, chipmunks, frogs, squirrels, and lots of cool-looking birds. It's so nice!
