Great Blue Heron

Ardea herodias

Description:

Large grey blue heron

Habitat:

Orlando Wetlands Park at Christmas Florida

Notes:

I watched a fascinating battle between the Heron and a Yellow Bullhead Catfish (Ameiurus natalis). During the exchange an American Alligator (Alligator mississippiensis) crossed the path and entered the water. It slowly stalked the Heron, which eventually dropped the fish. Then the gator crept close to the fish but then turned and continued to stalk the Heron
