Icky the Hungry Heron's Curtain Call

IMG_2229 (2)Many years ago, I donated the carving of Icky the Hungry Heron to NJ Audubon's Lorrimer Sanctuary in Franklin Lakes.

Earlier this week, I paid my ol' buddy a visit and read his biography to a bunch of inquisitive day campers who kept Icky and me on our toes.

A big thank you to Mary Birrer and Lorrimer for all their help.
