A Yellow Crowned Night Heron stopped by the house.
Certainly more welcomed than a live-in mouse.
My wife told me there were two of them yesterday.
I guess one has flown off and gone some other way.
This one was looking a little lonely standing in the rain.
I ran to get my camera hoping there he’d remain.
He must have known I wanted a picture, I suppose.
Once I had my camera there he stood, striking a pose.
He let me get off a few shots and then got bored
He spread his wings, took flight and off he soared.
Now, why a night heron was out in the day, I surmise
Is because I could not have gotten a picture otherwise.
However, there remains one item that’s still a blur.
I really don’t know if this heron was a him or a her.
