    For a few years, our outdoor pool has been taken over by a couple of ducks. Or should be a duck couple? They come in and swim around undisturbed,then leave a few weeks later. This year, the pool is closed because of construction, there will be no competition for them, so we will see what happens without people around.

    This is an outdoor, chlorinated pool, so they will have to go to the local fish market to eat;) I hope they have money!!!

    My neighbour had a kind that kept emptying mysteriously – after about the third refill they noticed a heron. When the point emptied the next time, they got someone in to clear it out – mud, plants and all. The liner was full of beak holes . . . .

    I would find koi and goldfish parts around my pond and then my doberman spotted the blue heron and would run it off. Nets over the pond ended up being the best things to keep the fish in the pond. Now if only my doberman would stop removing the frogs.

    We had a record-breaking downpour and the front yards in my neighborhood were full of large puddles. The next morning, a great blue heron decided to try his luck in every yard, walking purposefully down the street poking in every puddle.

    The bird should move to Stanley Park. The Herons put up with traffic and very active tennis courts under their nests. Parks Board has metal wrapped all the nesting trees for about a metre to keep the squirrels and raccoons away from the eggs. The nearby eagle nests are their only problem.
    .
    with the water features in front of some of our commercial buildings – nesting Mallards and Canada Geese can be common.

    Hunter7: My memories of Stanley Park was the squirrels could get around that either by jumping from adjacent trees or riding some human to above the metal.
