Backyard Find!

Do you see what I see?

A Great Blue Heron, right in our backyard!

Is this bird lost? We live right off of a main road in a residential area, but I guess we look like a swamp. This heron was about four feet tall and I assume looking for food. No fish here, but plenty of other critters to munch on.

Magnificent up close. Hope you visit us again soon!
