You'd be wrong.
We've had a stranger visit lately. Repeatedly. He looks alien and out of place. And he drives the dogs crazy.
The stranger is a great blue heron, who you may barely discern on the darker area in the pasture. I don't know WHY he has chosen our pasture. There are no fish to be had, and he is constantly bombarded with barking. But for some reason, he keeps coming back. Much to the chagrin of the dogs.
Jax, the white, fluffy dog, is not normally a barker. But he goes OFF when this bird is around, long after Kirch has settled down. And he barks incessantly. Like, I have to go chase the bird away if I want it to stop. I'm hoping it's not a crime to chase endangered birds. You'd think if the dog could get used the to cattle wandering by, he'd get used to a BIRD.
Ah well, he's keeping the homestead safe from aliens. I suppose that's OK.
