After a week of writing about Irene, power outages, Irene, power outages and more Irene, I got back to my normal job on Thursday afternoon.
I spent the day kayaking with South Riverkeeper Diana Muller and Chesapeake Conservation Corps member Carol Wong, looking for underwater grasses.
The story isn’t coming out until Saturday, but I wanted to share a couple highlights from the trip that won’t make the paper.
First, proof that I can handle a kayak:
And a black crowned night heron pooping! (Or peeing?)
(Sorry, the bird is out of focus, but it’s just too funny not to share. Also, a big thank you to Kevin Brooks and Dan Haas for help with bird identification.)
