I saw a whole bunch of herons on the beach. Eight or ten of them, maybe? It was low tide and they were standing on a sandbar up to their knees in the water, circling and landing in the same area. A dog came swimming out and bouncing through the waves scared the herons away. Then he swam back the other way and scared away three more. It was a long swim but the birds had great big sets of wings.

I'd like to have seen all those herons together. Shame about the dog, but well, I guess you got to see the birds span their wings as a result.

It was pretty incredible. They're beautiful birds. Reminds me of your story, too!
