Thanks to the person who Tweeted about the Green Heron at Juanita.  (The tweet was unsigned so I don't know the name of the Tweeter.)  Here is a video of a Green Heron ingesting what I think is a tadpole.  Also, thanks to the gentleman at Juanita who pointed out the Green Heron.
Aside:  Karen and I were in Edmonds for the Birdfest.  This morning our Canon SX50HS developed a lens error while filming in the marsh, despite the camera being virtually new..  Karen suggested Googling the problem to see if there were any solutions to be found online.  One person reported success using an unlikely technique.  Thump the camera on a hard surface with the interface side of the camera down.  I did it on the pavement behind our car.  The lens cap popped off.  Maybe I did it a little too hard!  Amazingly the camera is now working!  Without this primitive solution to a high tech problem, I would not have been able to video the Green Heron.
