We don’t have a pond but at least once a year, we have a Great Blue Heron fly over. These are the largest and heaviest herons as well as the most vocal. They are solitary and nocturnal although you can spot these around ponds during the day.
Nature inspires awe!
These are some papers that I refer to often:
