Great Blue Heron  (Ardea herodias) at the Pond

Standing close to four feet high, the Great Blue Heron is one of the most majestic of birds. Their diet is mostly fish but it will eat a variety of insects and even small animals. Their bill is yellow with a dusky culmen (the top part of the bill). Lores are yellow to dull green, except during breeding when the lores are a bright green, and their legs are a greenish brown. ©Delores Knowles, 2009
