It has been a while since I have given you an update on my favorite heron. For those who are new Peggy has been in the neighborhood for over four years and she has an injured leg. We call her Peggy even though we are not sure she is a female. Peggy of course is the affectionate term for the fact that one leg is pretty much as if she was a pirate. The quick report is Peggy is doing well. She had a challenge with her bad leg about a month ago and was not getting around too well. She has recovered and is back to her old self.
Here is a photo of Peggy starting her hunt in our backyard.
And now she is really concentrating
Yes, she managed to get a fish. The next photo is a different time but the same place. Not that the photo is so good but is a matter of tracking her. The afternoon sun made the shot hard to get.
With Peggy getting the shot is sometimes hard since she doesn’t like to pose.
Here she is fishing along the Gulf shore. I am walking the dogs, and she is always on guard when I have them with me. This next photo shows how she manages to make ends meet.
I talked to this group of fisherman, and they had named Peggy Burt. It appears these guys have been fishing here for four years and “Burt” pays them a visit every time. While I was there, Peggy got four pieces of bait, so it looks like she has some pretty good friends.
All in all, Peggy is doing fine. I hope you liked the update.
