Great Blue Heron

These birds amaze me!  Great Blues are so silent and graceful when they fly. They are truly a joy to watch.

This fellow must be quite used to admiration.  I saw this one on a pier at the Ocean Springs Harbor and it wasn't nearly as bothered by me as most Great Blues are.  It was a least four feet tall.

What a handsome creature.


  1. He does look rather majestic, with his head held high. :)


  2. I had one in my back yard month ago eating the fish out of my ponds!

  3. Scott, he does doesn't he?

    BenB, that would be upsetting! Of course for him, it's like shooting fish in a barrel. :)

  4. Yes, it was! I put up a mannequin head on a stick body with a T-shirt - they are not fond of humans from what I have read and don't want to be around them - and that got rid of him. But, they are very beautiful!


Please play nicely.
