I almost always regret it when I think like that.
On the return leg of our walk, I looked on the roof of a neighbor's three-story house and spotted what I at first took to be some sort of stylish weather vane. It resembled a long-legged bird with an extremely long neck and an extremely long bill. Wait a minute -- it shifted its head left to survey us. It was a huge, gangly bird -- almost like something out of the prehistoric era. You don't see birds like this everyday perched on suburban rooftops.
From now on, on days when my brain is functioning, I will bring my camera on our walks. The photos used here are courtesy of Google Images. They resemble the magnificent bird that Superdawg and I encountered yesterday. Today, we saw a Red-Tailed Hawk on another rooftop -- impressive, but not as spectacular as the heron, which was perhaps checking out waterfront lunching spots from its high perch.
