Another lovely, humidity-free day. Got my friend Earl (who knows, he looks like an Earl), a great blue heron, to within about 20 feet today with a can of sardines in virgin olive oil. He’s getting closer every time. After eating the sardines (which I flung at him but he knows by now that means foods a coming) he hung around for about 10 minutes while I sat there watching him. Think shrimp next time and will fling them about 10 to 12 feet away and see if he’ll come that close. step at a time and with those legs even one step is a long way.
