For homebuyers looking for carefree living near the water, a residence at Heron Harbor Condominiums in Havre de Grace might be an idea that floats to the top. The Unit A condo at 555 Concord St. offers magnificent views and is move-in-ready for $749,900. It is part of a community of three waterfront buildings. The setting near historic Concord Point (the site of one of the oldest continuously operating lighthouses on the East Coast) at the mouth of the Susquehanna River overlooks a restored marina and offers beautiful vistas of the Chesapeake Bay. The unit's open floor plan has three bedrooms and two bathrooms, with a large kitchen and breakfast bar, a dining room and a spacious living room.

Certainly, the Piscataway must have been among the Native Americans who understood The Way of the Heron. They lived along the shores, too. They inhabited land at the edges of the Chesapeake in what became Southern Maryland. They must have noticed how the great blue heron, stalking fish in the marshes, got along with other birds - even the teasing red-winged blackbird - and from that observation came a whole feast of philosophy about the peaceful life. The Way of the Heron, Evan Pritchard says, is an ancient Algonquin teaching, and he knows it well enough that he can share its timeless wisdom easily with those who are open to it. Mr. Pritchard, a descendant of Algonquin-speaking people, is the director of the Center for Algonquin Culture in New York, a professor of Native American history at Marist College, a teacher of philosophy and ethics, and the author of several books, including, "Native American Stories of the Sacred" and "No Word For Time, The Way of the Algonquin People.

The Rev. Raymond Franklin Heron Jr., who served as a deacon of the Episcopal Diocese of Maryland for 50 years and was a retired business manager, died May 12 at his Ellicott City home of complications from surgery. He was 91. Mr. Heron was born in Cumberland and moved to Baltimore with his family when he was a child. After graduating from City College in 1935, he began his business career with the Maryland Casualty Co. In 1941, he took a position with Puritan Pressed Gas Corp. He enlisted in the Navy in 1942, and because he "knew how to type, he was assigned to the Baltimore recruiting office during the war," said a son, Mark E. Heron of Arnold.

As a volunteer cleanup crew in Finksburg disposed of the last of 20 trash bags of litter collected along Route 91 near Route 140, something rustled and squawked in a clump of tall grass. Volunteer Neil Ridgely followed the sound and found an injured great blue heron, the long-legged avian whose likeness adorns many Maryland license plates. Herons grow several feet tall, with feathers accounting for most of their weight. They are graceful, skittish and decidedly unfriendly. This bird threatened its prospective rescuers with its foot-long beak.

It is minutes before sunset as Officer Mark Heron relaxes in his unmarked Crown Victoria, turns off the engine and points his small, black binoculars at the entrance to a Clarksville liquor store. He is confident that he will get someone. Howard County is full of teenagers hoping to throw back a few brewskies on a humid summer weekend. And Heron, the county's alcohol enforcer, knows exactly where local kids buy their buzz. He has only to watch and wait. And not for long. Less than 15 minutes pass before three young men in a maroon Ford Expedition pull up to the store near River Hill High School.

I'd like to say that I spent days traipsing through a swamp in January, looking for the best angle and waiting for the right light to portray a pair of nesting great blue herons. But in reality, this photograph was taken amid south Florida's tract-home suburbia at a water treatment plant during the first 30 minutes of a three-day birding trip with my father. I was a little apprehensive when he suggested we head to the 50-acre Wakodahatchee Wetlands Park in Delray Beach rather than the Everglades.

The father posing the question to the police officer sounded genuinely baffled. If his son were to come home drunk, he asked, what should he do - "Is there a suggested route of discipline?" Officer Mark Heron, who fights teen drinking for the Howard County Police Department, was clear. Be a parent. Go to the Department of Motor Vehicles and ask to have his license pulled. Do whatever it takes. "You have the ability to grab your child and take him to the hospital and test him for drugs any time," Heron said.

Elizabeth Sprinkel loved to swim in the ocean, no matter what the season. The 48-year-old Severna Park woman didn't care if the water was cold or warm or far away.In early July last year, a week before she and her two grandchildren died in a car accident on Ritchie Highway, she was at her mother's house in Branford, Conn., diving beneath the waves off the New England coast."She could swim in any weather," said Maggie Coleman, one of Sprinkel's closest friends. "She could swim for hours. We went snorkeling in the Caribbean one year and she stayed in the water forever without any flippers on."

Marge Pearce always wanted to live by the water. In November 2002, the 60-year-old widow and mother of two grown daughters sold her large home in Fallston and bought a Harford County condominium at the community of Water's Edge. This gated community, on the banks of the wide and serene Bush River, has been designed around a 30-acre private nature preserve. The rich architectural details of the one-level homes and condominiums include coffered, domed, or tray ceilings, as well as finely turned interior columns and pilasters.

NEW YORK - The spot was in the heart of an urban bedlam, surrounded by the hurtling traffic of the Triborough Bridge, the smokestacks of Con Edison, the grim warrens of Rikers Island, the roar of La Guardia jets and three sewage treatment plants. Yet there hunched on a beach on South Brother Island in the East River, looking like old philosophers mulling a tangled question, were five great blue herons. These willowy long-legged waterfowl would seem to find the quiet of the Everglades more congenial than the hurly burly of New York City.
