Green Heron, June 10, 2020

Wild Bird Wednesday and My Corner of the World

Tupelo, Mississippi, USA, June 7, 2020
Green Herons, Butorides virescens, are small migratory Herons that live near shallow water, and are one of the few birds that use tools, dropping feathers, insects, or bread crusts into the water to lure fish near them. Source: All About Birds website

It is amazing to me that when Green Herons extend their necks they are twice as tall!

Have a wonderful day!

  1. They are lightening fast hunters, too.

  2. The Green Heron is one of my many favorite, great captures.
    Have a great day!

  3. Love the greens. We only have the blues!

  4. It would be convenient to have an extendible neck like that! ;-)

  5. These are such gorgeous creatures! I had no idea they extended their necks like that, wow!

    I am excited to see your corner at 'My Corner of the World' this week! Thanks for linking up.

  6. I've seen green herons but not with their necks up like that.


I enjoy your comments!

Thank you for visiting!
