Great Blue Heron

Ardea herodias


Common heron, large, blue/gray


lakes, ponds, marshes can be found virtually anywhere in North America


this bird landed in front of us on the fishing pier. Attracted by the bait on the pier, and seemed habituated to people, most likely due to visitors throwing fish
