Wild Bird Wed.great blue heron

I took a little road trip with my friend, Cathleen, on Sat. & on the back roads leading to Amish country, we spotted this great blue heron. She tells me this bird is here every Sun. when they pass this way to church. So, I went back after my church on Sun. ,& sure enough, this lone heron was there. It is the first time I`ve been this close to a heron. There are no nests in trees there, so perhaps this fellow is just passing through. The pictures aren`t great, but I was happy to get a few.

Hooking up with Stewart for wild bird Wed. at this link. http://paying-ready-attention-gallery.blogspot.com/You have another day yet to submit your photo to his meme.

Great picture! I know there are some in the marshes in Sandwich but I haven't gotten a pic yet.

Nice pictures, esp. of him flying! We had one in our yard/pasture a few years back, walking all around. I was told that the young ones expend their territory after leaving the nest, and it was probably looking around for a new place. We live fairly close to a river, and we see them there all the time, and in the little streams down the road.

You got some wonderful shots of the Heron. They are magnificent birds. I liked the in-flight shots a lot. Thanks for stopping by my blog for WBW. I'm now following your blog. Would love to get updates if you could add a Follow by Email button that would be great.
