The agami heron is a medium-sized heron. It is a resident breeding bird from Central America south to Peru and Brazil. The agami heron’s habitat is forest swamps and similar wooded wetlands. They nest in colonies on platforms of sticks in trees over water, which may gather more than 100 nests. It is short-legged for a heron, but has a very long thin bill. Agami herons stalk their fish prey in shaded shallow water, often standing still or moving very slowly. They rarely wade in open water. They also take frogs, small reptiles, and snails.

Last week Violet and I saw that someone had put together a tiny house sleeping cabin / music practice studio. It is located just below Violet’s Kindergarten where the 2011 March Tsunami washed everything away. I felt happy seeing this little house equipped with such amenities as a single burner camp stove, keyboard, a font porch with pansies in bloom, all scrap or reclaimed materials including Japanese cedar lap-siding & external window boxes with sliding plexiglass widows. There was even a makeshift solar array out front too.
