Friday's Foto

The Great Blue Heron is North America's largest heron. Standing nearly 4' tall, with a nearly 6' wingspan, they use a large, dagger-like bill to grab anything within striking distance. Their primary diet is fish, but they'll take frogs, insects, rodents, salamanders, snakes, turtles and even other birds. They can be found throughout North America, even as far north as Alaska and the southern Canadian provinces. Their wintering range extends to northern South America. This hardy species can sometimes be found in our area during winter when many water bodies are frozen.
