Birds often sit on our roof, but rarely Great Blue Herons

Our resident Great Blue Heron has decided to take up a new perch which irritates our dog Tootsie to no end. I’m not particularly happy with the dropping on the roof either, but having a large bird like this sitting on one’s roof does make for an impressive sight when driving up the driveway (unlike doves which are there every evening – aka: messy pigeons!)

  • I kid you not when I say we had the same thing happen weekend before last. We were pulling up in the driveway when son #2 says “hey, look at that huge bird on our roof”. I backed up the van to see it. Couldn’t get a good picture because of the lighting at the time.
