We've all seen them. Big, gangly, prehistoric looking birds. We've seen them flying, perched in tree's, wading in ponds, rivers and puddles, hunting for their supper. They are the top of their food chain, feeding on anything they can swallow. They prefer aquatic species, but will eat rats, mice, birds and even baby ducks. One thing they are is beautiful. So enjoy this peek into the world of the Great Blue Heron.
