Great Blue Heron
A minister is stopped by a state trooper for speeding. The trooper smells alcohol on his breath and sees an empty wine bottle on the floor.
The trooper asks, “Sir, have you been drinking?” And the minister says, “Just water.”
The trooper says, “Then why do I smell wine?” And the minister looks down at the bottle and says,
“Good Lord, He’s done it again!”
Interesting Fact: Great Blue Herons in the northeastern U.S. and southern Canada have benefited from the recovery of beaver populations, which have created a patchwork of swamps and meadows well-suited to foraging and nesting. ( https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Great_Blue_Heron/lifehistory )
