The marsh was such a pretty sight this year, filled with Pickerelweed and its large spikes of violet-blue flower clusters. Also, Verbena hastata is in flower too. Unfortunately, the larger pond was filled with duckweed. It kinda ruins my photo of the heron above. I like the water blue as I like the sky blue.
Cormorants fly over the marsh and occasionally you might see one by the Niagara River’s edge ground level, but more likely roosting in trees riverside.
