Great Blue Heron

Ardea herodias


Great Blue Heron taking off from our pond. We like to watch them (along with little Green Herons) fishing.


It can be found in a range of habitats, in fresh and saltwater marshes, mangrove swamps, flooded meadows, lake edges, or shorelines, but always close to bodies of water, usually nesting in trees or bushes.
