Great Blue Herons, November 1, 2017

Wild Bird Wednesday, Wednesday Around The World, and I'd Rather B Birdin'

Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, September 30, 2017
Great Blue Herons, Ardea Herodias, are the largest North American Heron. They can be seen all across the continent near any body of water large enough for fish, their primary food. Great Blue Herons have good night vision enabling them to hunt day or night.

In addition to fish they eat reptiles, amphibians, small mammals, and insects.

Have a beautiful day!

  1. Nice photos of the Herons. Stretched up as in the second photo they really are great birds!

  2. Hello, great post and info on the Great Blue Heron. I always enjoy seeing these beautiful birds. Have a happy Wednesday!

  3. Great Indeed. When the heron is stood next to that huge tree it's easy to see how big a bird it is.

  4. Gorgeous pictures...I never tire of seeing these magnificent birds!

  5. Love Great Blue Herons especially how they have this wonderful almost prehistoric sound. Forget sometimes how large they really are. Your photos highlight that wonderfully.

  6. Beautifully composed images of the heron! I especially like the one with the huge tree in the background! Awesome.
