The Great Blue Heron On A Sunny Day!

The Great Blue Heron On A Sunny Day!

Great Blue Heron

This Great Blue is drying out his wings on a warm sunny day… this is America’s largest heron, They are big and gray with a huge bill and can be found all across the US, Canada and Mexico. Interesting to watch them hunt for food, they stand very still for long periods of time or sometimes walk very slowly waiting for a fish to swim by. They mostly eat fish, but they don’t limit themselves to just fish. They have been seen eating frogs, turtles, snakes insects, rodents and birds! I’ve got pictures of one eating a snake, not a pretty thing to see, not sure why I took the picture, kind of like a seeing a train wreck, I just couldn’t look away…
