Today at the TCAAP WVA, I saw the First Monarda of the Year

Went out to the TCAAP Wildlife Viewing Area this morning and saw the first Monarda (bee balm) blooming. This plant is all over the place within the WVA and this is a first bloomer.

At one point, I heard an awful creepy squawking and looked to see a great blue heron being annoyed by a red-winged blackbird. Fortunately, it landed on one of the closer dead trees.
