From Pat Thorne, another marvelous picture of our glorious outdoors here in Schroon.

"While out padding, I spotted this little Green-backed heron grooming himself on a log. They favor lake margins and marshes.  They are about the size of a crow with bright yellow legs and chestnut colored chest, and a small black crest on its head".
