Tales of an Arlandria Twitcher: The Earth Day Edition

More on the wildlife around Four Mile Run by The Arlandrian's resident amateur ornithologist:

Black-crowned Night-Heron at Four Mile Run Park in Alexandria, VA.
This was one of a pair that I found in the park today. At least one has been present all winter.
He's become my favorite friend in the park.

In addition to his side-line as a naturalist, Jake Cuomo is an all around neighborhood good guy organizing stream clean-ups of the Four Mile Run, initiating community tree plantings on Earth Day, helping build the new Commonwealth Park on Reed Avenue and the Four Mile Run Park Expansion. 

Jake is the winner of the 2012 Alexandria Beautification Award, along with his wife, Erin.
