Every time I put in new fish and nurture them up to a decent size, an egret
comes along and eats them all. This has been going on for 8 years now. No
more fish.

==============================
Buy those fine black bird nets. ACE Hardware has the best prices. We had
to net everything or the herons, kingfishers, snakes, bullfrogs and snapper
turtles got them all.

I agree... for me it was a toss up as to which I would rather have.. a
pond or a heron feeding station.
