Yesterday, I found a great blue heron at Shingle Creek. Great blue herons can be up to four and a half feet tall. They nest in trees that are twenty to sixty feet up high from the ground. Herons and egrets are solidarity feeders, they also spend most of their time alone, when they are not spending time with their babies. Great blue herons can have up to two to six babies. When is is the winter time great blue herons nest in colonies, though sometimes there will be other species of herons nesting with them. The size of these colonies can be large, from just five nests to five hundred nests per colony.
When I was getting pictures of the heron, I accidentally scared it and so it flew off. Luckily I managed to get a shot of it flying off.
If anyone has any questions, type it in the comments.

Great pics. Very natural. Takes time but so worthwhile.
Hey now I know the difference between a crane and a heron in flight. Thx
