We’ve been down working in the garden in our house in Briarcliff Manor and I took the dog for a walk through the village and into Law Park. We were down by the pond when I saw the rather nondescript bird above. I don’t know what it is – maybe a cormorant? It was certainly very comfortable in the water and at one point dove in and disappeared completely for a while.
While I was taking pictures of it I saw a flash of white and the rather impressive egret below flew in. I was far to slow to get a picture of it in flight but pursued it around the pond trying to get close enough for a decent picture. Whenever I got close it would fly to the other side of the pond so I eventually gave up.
The two birds together.
