SNACK TIME - A Great Blue Heron (Ardea herodias) takes advantage of the warm afternoon sun on Monday to scout out a late-afternoon snack in a pond on the grounds of the Seaford Golf & Country Club. The heron, the largest and most numerous of North American herons, has become a "resident" of the area feeding on small fish in the numerous ponds. Once a heron establishes a "home" it tends to stay around - even in the winter. Winter weather is expected to return to the area this weekend with lows in the teens on Saturday and Sunday.
