    Just came back in. Saw Heron, Osprey, Kingfishers, and an otter that was pretty darn surprised to surface and see me!

    Light on the wildlife today ó a few hawks, an otter, a ton of sizable turtles.

    I can never tell the difference between cranes, herons, and egrets. I really need to just spend the time and learn it.

    Autumn starts making appearances in about a month, leaves change in about two. Nice time to do it.

    Going with SonPK tomorrow, this time a one-way float down the canal. A wonderful paddle.

    "Cranes" are the things they use to lift steel.
    "Heron" is what kept the Stones going in the 70's.
    "No Egrets" is a tattoo fail.

    See, I can be helpful.

    I used to be a birder. Stopped when I had kids. Wouldn't mind picking it up again and I can still tell the difference between cranes, herons, and egrets.

    Youíll need to come down kayaking when dinK does and point out the difference.

    Are cranes more coastal?

    There are only 2 kinds of crane native to North America, sandhill (summers in Canada, winters in Texas and Florida and coastal southern Georgia) and whooping - an endangered species. You don't see whooping cranes in Georgia. Sandhill cranes are big with mostly brown feathers, grey necks, and a red patch near the eye. Quick guide to the others - the all white ones are egrets, the bigger of the all white ones are great egrets, the medium sized all white ones are snowy egrets, you might see some lesser egrets too. The blue and grey big ones are great blue herons. The ones that look like they are stalking you at dusk, ready to steal something, are night herons. You might also be seeing some ibises.

    Thanks! I will put this knowledge to use in about an hour when I get on the water!
