Great Blue Heron at Hopkinton State Park

I had to pick up some kitten food at lunchtime today for our newest household member, Charlie.  He must be growing!  He's eating a lot, and I was completely out of his food!  We keep both our cats indoors, so they are not a threat to the local bird population!

I stopped at Hopkinton State Park on the way home.

I was surprised to find that the main beach had been drained.  There was a Great Blue Heron fishing in the small remaining channel of water.  The edge of the channel was dotted with bright, colorful flowers.  I read on line that an Indian festival took place there about a week ago.  I wonder if the birds like the flowers?
