Not to be discouraged that easily, we decided that since we were all decked out with buckets and nets, a stop along the Grand River was in order. What a great idea!! What followed was a wonderful completely un-planned discussion on the difference between wet lands and river banks. It is amazing how much learning follows the words "isn't it interesting that...".
If you click on the picture above to enlarge it you might catch a glimpse of the Great Blue Heron just taking off from the river.
Ever seen one of these cool critters before? This one I will definitely have to look up.
