Great Blue Heron

Why was strawberry sad?

Because her mom was in a jam.

Interesting Fact: Great Blue Herons nest mainly in trees, but will also nest on the ground, on bushes, in mangroves, and on structures such as duck blinds, channel markers, or artificial nest platforms. Males arrive at the colony and settle on nest sites; from there, they court passing females. Colonies can consist of 500 or more individual nests, with multiple nests per tree built 100 or more feet off the ground. ( https://throughopenlens.com/tag/great-blue-heron/ )

  1. He certainly looks like he’s just surveying his territory, taking it easy. They are really impressive birds, you have captured him well.

  2. I have never seen a heron in a tree. There’s a heron who often comes by and fishes on my neighbor’s floating dock. I’ve seen him fly over and stand in another neighbor’s yard. I have laughed like crazy when the heron did a fly-over dump that was like a helicopter trying to put out a fire. I’ve seen a heron on a riverbank, but never in a tree. These pictures are great!

    • Thank you very much, I am glad that I was able to share heron in the tree with you. I also appreciate your feedback and fun experiences you shared with us. Stay Safe and Happy Blogging! 🙂

  3. One of my favorite birds – unless I startle one before I know it’s there, and the first I know of it is a loud squawk too close!
