GBH AT A POND

GREAT BLUE HERON
GREAT BLUE HERON

The Great blue heron is a highly adaptable bird that is found in various water places such as rivers, swamps, inlets, marshes, ponds, or the ocean. They are the largest wading bird in North America that feeds on fish. One evening at dusk, I watched out the window to a pond where a GBH was wading in the water. It poked his head under the water and came up with a fish in his large bill. It raised its head up and adjusted the fish so it would go down the throat, I could see it sliding down as it bulged out his neck as it moved down to the belly. This was an amazing nature moment to witness.

I took this photo on a different day. This Great blue heron was standing in the afternoon sun, at another pond. Read more: GREAT BLUE HERON
