Eh! Whatchu Lookin' At?

Real Estate Agent with Liberty Homes RS-#62825

We went out to Ko'olina today to take some pictures and to just enjoy a lazy afternoon after a giant lunch.  I was taking a picture of Flat Stanley (who came from Pennsylvania) and in my eyesight was......this beautiful bird. I stayed so still and just watched it slowly turn around and look at me. He stood still just watching me. I felt privileged to take his picture and how beautiful it turned out!

So what is it? Looks a little like a Night Heron/

Flat Stanley certainly brings back memories of a few years ago here on AR.

It is the time of the year around here that we are also seeing the birds return.  My favorites are the Cardinals.
