When I started birding with Ruth Sullivan when birding was slow she would always say, “One good bird, that’s all we need” to make our day successful. The Green Heron we saw on our first visit back to Theler would have been enough to make my day, but then Leslie spotted this weasel
at the main bridge while I was gazing into the distance. It was so close that I had trouble finding it even when she pointed it out.
I have seen a weasel several times but never this close. I was surprised when it climbed up onto the bridge,
ran forward a couple of feet,
and ducked behind a post,
all the time staring intently at me.
Though I’ll admit to being a tad nervous when it ran toward me and not away, it made my day.
