If you look closely behind the boys in the first picture, you can see a flock of geese. Among the geese is one Great Blue Heron. We've never seen one in our area before, but since we had that severe rainstorm recently, this one has taken to the pond and park right next door to us. I have better pics below of him/her. The boys thought it was cool and wanted to go over to say hi to it, but of course, we didn't let them, lol.
