All caught up
When I first spied this heron from a distance I thought he had been tagged. Getting closer it looked like some type of tube attached to his leg.
It wasn't until I got home and enlarged my photos that I saw he had gotten hooked by a fishing lure.
The good news is that he was able to fly away. Hopefully the lure will work its way free and not get tangled on a tree branch. It's very sad when there is nothing you can do.
I've notified the appropriate people at the Park who are on the look-out for him and I'll be doing the same when I go back on Sunday.
