This is another bird that likes to go "fishing" in the pond at my parents' house. Very pretty to watch.

We live in Mountain View,CA and just off the Stevens Creek Trail near the bay, we have about 2 or 3 dozen mating pairs in a group of trees where we get to enjoy watching their young the entire summer.
