Most of you know that we moved from South Florida into the Tampa area this past year. We're enjoying our new home and surroundings.
Because our back yard faces a small pond, we see some interesting wildlife. Look at what we recently spotted! A Blue Heron. He's standing on a concrete overflow pipe.
I looked it up and found a site, where I copied this information:
* Large, gray bird.
* Long legs
* Long, "S"-shaped neck.
* Long, thick bill.
* White crown stripe.
* Black plume extending from behind eye to off the back of the neck.
* Shaggy feathers on neck and back.
* Bluish gray back, wings, and belly.
* Reddish or gray neck.
* White morph all white with pale legs, yellow bill.
Juvenile similar to adult, but has gray crown, a dark upper bill, rusty brown edging to back feathers, and lacks body plumes.
That little touch of Blue on his feathers identifies him.
The same web site captures his sound. Click here to hear the noise that has kept me awake at night!
