#SpringFun
Right now at the Franklin Park Conservatory, spring is in FULL bloom with over 100,000 bulbs and many other spring flowering trees and shrubs putting on quite a spectacular display! The Canada goose (Branta canadensis) can be a nuisance in some scenarios, but pest or not, these goslings are adorable. The great blue heron (Ardea herodias) is the largest North American heron. It can be around four ft tall with a near six ft wingspan.
It can be quite a spectacle to watch these guys fish. They can stand motionless for long periods of time just staring, then suddenly darting their face into the water and usually emerging with a fish in its beak.
