In the dusk of the evening, this Great Blue Heron is just sitting and waiting for it's meal to swim by. In flight, these birds look like monsters and have a load croaking like call. My boat was going too fast to get a good shot of it and sunset cloudy conditions did not help. There are so many of these birds around the Connecticut River, I know that I will have another opportunity.

An amazing place right on the Connecticut River! The Goodspeed Opera House is where Annie started off before making it big on Broadway. I just love the building in it's setting. The bridge is a swing bridge, which can be a pain in the summer time with the large boats needing it open. Traffic is not pretty during a show time!

Every time I see a Belted Kingfisher, I think of my trip to India. You might think that is a little strange, especially since I relate it to beer. Kingfisher was the beer they sold there and I was often asked to go out and pick up a six pack for my husband and brother-in-law.....they were a little weary at times to leave the apartment and venture out. Anyway, I love these birds, they are so load and fun to see hovering over the water fishing.
