I took this picture, at Deanna’s behest, with my Canon T3i, at 10:45 pm, 4th of July, off Route 28, in Alton, New Hampshire (right off the ‘Circle’) coming back from the Wolfeboro concert & fireworks.

That is Merrymeeting River or Swamp. Not the lake. Lake is much further away in New Durham.

I think the yellowness had to do with the smoke from all of the 4th of July fireworks.

Another picture taken, roughly from the same place, in April 2015, Easter Sunday, when the river was partially frozen.

Monday, April 6, 2015: I had to go into Alton around noon to pick up Teischan who was sick (again). The heron was at the same spot, Merrymeeting River (by Alton circle) — both times I drove past. Must be his/her spot. How can I tell its gender? Different color? Size? I will have to look up. Just wanted to let YOU know.

A friend who knows his birds put me right on a few things. It is definitely an adult Great Blue Heron (GBH). Very little difference in appearance between males and females. So could be either. He also added: “Herons migrate in early, so if the bird has already settled in, one would expect that its mate is located in a heronry (A GBH rookery) in an isolated wetland with a number of dead or dying trees in which they are nesting”.
