Thanks to Pat Thorne and her love of Nature, we are learning more and more about Schroon;s Wildlife. We received this yesterday rom Pat.

"I was on my morning walk, when I saw this blue heron’s shadow through the weeds. I thought wow, he is still here.   The wind has been really fierce and bitter along with the snow showers the past few days.  Here in a sheltered cove, he was enjoying the warming sun’s rays and preening himself.   There was still a little open water there so he could still feed on fish. Soon he will be forced to move south to enjoy the opportunities that open water offer"

Thanks again, Pat.

Paradox took 2nd Place in the Spice Fruit Lager at the 18th Annual Great International Beer & Cider Competition in Rhode Island last weekend!
