Ohiofarmgirl's Adventures in The Good Land is largely a fish out of water tale about how I eventually found my footing on a small farm in an Amish town. We are a mostly organic, somewhat self sufficient, sustainable farm in Ohio. There's action and adventure and I'll always tell you the truth about farming.

Look who is on our pond

I have a friend who is a terrific birder - she can spot a female blue bird at a thousand yards....so I know that she'll let me know what this is... I think its a heron?

This big bird showed up a couple weeks ago and has making itself right at home. Isn't it amazing? The dogs don't like it because it makes funny noises.

Happy Wednesday everyone! Anyone else got a funny bird on their pond?

Hard to tell, but it kind of looks like a sandhill Crane.

Love the heron! They do make rather prehistoric squawking noises

It looks like a crane to me, too. We have a lot of them in our area of Wisconsin where we are surrounded by ponds and creeks/rivers. They do make an eerie sound. I have a bird dog (Labrador Retriever) and it freaks her out.

Thank Ian! I think we ended up deciding it was a Great Blue Heron... or GBH as birder say.

Its the craziest noise ever, Dave...wow!
