It has been a while since I have updated Peggy the Heron’s status. For those not familiar with Peggy, she is a Blue Heron and has one injured leg. None of the rescue folks have been able to catch her and so for the last couple of years, she is one of our neighbors. I am happy to report Peggy is dong well. She is still giving the sad limp to fishermen and collecting fish in the process. Here is a photo of her on the beach.
Another taken last December in the water. There is a fisherman off camera, and she is asking him for a sample. She can only use one leg to stand.
Here is a photo of her taken from our backyard. As you can imagine, she also enjoys the benefits of pond life. The photo is a little blurred because I tried to do a close up with my iPhone. My old man hands couldn’t hold the phone steady enough, but you can get the idea.
Here is a better shot showing the pond and Peggy.
So as you can see, Peggy has branched out from Gulf fishing to include pond fishing. She usually spends the mornings on the beach and afternoons in our yard. We are alway glad to see her. She looks great and is doing well.
