Green heron spears frog in downtown pond

Green heron spearing a frog  (credit; Reinke)

Here is a list of birds and animals John Reinke has seen this year in the 90th Street retention pond with the three lopped trees:  
- A group of five otters seen together there all at the same time earlier this year;  
- great blue herons are fairly common  - took a picture of one swallowing a large catfish 
- green herons  
- blue kingfisher 
- beaver -  I have a photo of one I took back around 2011 or 2012
- invasive bull frog  
- black mink - I saw one there years ago
- ring necked ducks 
"Isn't it remarkable the variety of wildlife we have here in suburban Redmond?"
