GREETINGS from Captain January!

Little Blue Heron calling out in a salt marsh

Granted, a greeting from Lyle the Little Blue Heron sounds more like HAWWWWNK…

But I’ve no doubt he was saying hello—shortly after staring me in the face.

This likeness is taken with a lens that’s really too short for a detailed likeness, but I love the personality I see. Here is a bird I’ve known since he was a snow-white child and have longed to see in this frozen month…

Popping up out of the blue and saying “I’m back!”
