Great Blue Heron and friends

Ardea herodias

Description:

I was photographing this heron in flight when a small flock of white rumped sandpipers flew into the shot going the other way. The great blue heron is the largest heron in North America. It stands three to four feet tall and has a wingspan of almost six feet. It has blue-gray feathers on most of its body and a plume of feathers on its chest and back. It has a long, pointed yellow bill and long legs. Adults have white on the top of their heads and long black plumes above their eyes.

Habitat:

Lake Lewisville
