    Great Blue Heron

    Great blue herons are amazing, highly adaptable and can be found in a wide range of wetland habitats, from freshwater lakes and rivers to saltwater estuaries and coastal shorelines. They are commonly distributed throughout North America, with their range extending into parts of Central America and the Caribbean.

    The male and female look almost the same. On average, males are a little larger with longer ornamental plumes, but these distinctions are so slight and variable that it’s hard to see the difference, even when members of a pair are together.
    The great blue heron is the largest heron species in North America, standing about 4 feet tall. For such large and lanky birds, herons are speedy, flying as fast as 30 mph.
    They usually fly with their necks in an S-shape and their legs trailing behind them.
    With a lightning-fast strike, herons easily nab fish or frogs for a meal.
    It’s always a pleasure to find this beautiful bird.
