I hope Harry has a long life cause it could be devastating if not! I imagine he's as close as a pet dog. Just one Harry??
Well, there is another smaller (younger, maybe female) Heron that has been hanging around my house for several months. It's the one Harry chases off if she gets too close or crosses the street to his fishing spot. Harry has the territory across the street and this new arrival (I'll name her Harriet) stays on my side in a tree in my yard. She has watched me fish with Harry and now wants to do it too. When I walk out of my house now, Harriet calls to me (something Harry never does...he's the strong silent type). I have used several loaves of bread with Harriet, but she has not caught one fish with me yet. She also was more afraid but is getting more used to me and bolder. It's funny, but they both now will break up the bread with their beaks and re-arrange the pieces in front of them to entice the fish.
