Great Blue Herons can be found near lakes, rivers and marshes. They eat fish, frogs, small mammals and reptiles. They usually build their nests in trees (but sometimes on the ground) and lay 3 to 7 pale greenish-blue eggs. Most Great Blue Herons that breed in the northern parts of the United States migrate to the southern states to spend the winter. Other Great Blue Herons live in the southern states the entire year.
Today I'm also joining
Wild Bird Wednesday
|Great Blue Heron, Tupelo, MS, USA, January 4, 2015|
With its neck folded down and its shoulders hunched up against the wind, it didn't look any happier with the weather than I was. There is some marshy land nearby that I would guess is its usual territory.
Hope you are having a great day!
