Stray Casts will intelligently report and observe, hopefully with a touch of wit, on daily occurrences, reports and releases related to Chicago-area outdoors from bucks to bass to birds to bugs

Bear weather? Green heron weather?

Jeff Knor's wonderful shot of a green heron gave me a good excuse to examine the impact of our goofy weather on Chicago outdoors.

He took this shot of the green heron hunting along the shore of an Oak Forest lagoon.

It was the first time that he has seen one at the lagoon and speculated it was a result of a winter fish kill taking out the adult largemouth bass and allowing frogs to explode.

That's probably a dead-on speculation.

Impacts of our weather is the basis of my outdoors column in the Sun-Times today.

BTW, I love photo.
