Save The Goldfish?
Some of you might have noticed that I offer goldfish for sale at my Saturday farm stand, well, none of you were buying any and now a black crowned night heron is all the happier for it. This new visitor to Tonopah Rob’s vegetable farm has taken a liking to the pond which “used-to-be” filled with nearly 200 goldfish. About 140 of them have found their way into this beautiful bird. No more sluggish fish live in these waters, the remaining goldfish are 100 meter dash candidates for the Summer Olympics. The school is getting thin and I am considering embarking on a “Save the Goldfish” campaign. On the other hand, maybe I should ask for fish donations instead so that the heron becomes a permanent resident.
