Today on Season Three – Episode Fourteen – Little Ducks in Fields of Green – we start out with the babies giving them first crack at the newly filled pools before the “big kids” come take over.
Then we let the adults out and Charlie finally draws a bead on the “bad bird” we always have him looking for. You will see the bird dog come out in him as he instinctively goes into a point, even though the bad bird (a Blue Heron) is about 35 yards away and about 50 feet up.
Charlie has done a great job of chasing off both hawks and herons. We are constantly keeping him on the look out, today it just worked out that one actually showed up.
