Great Blue Heron

Dropped off the bird at school and caught this scene out of the corner of my eye. Reached into my purse for my camera, but alas, I left it on my kitchen counter. Sometimes you've just gotta run home to grab your camera and hope that the wildlife is still there when you get back...

As I was taking a few shots, a car pulled up to me and asked, "do you know what that is?" I had no idea.  "It's a great blue heron. Kind of a junk bird." We talked for a few minutes and as he drove away I noticed the "Papa Romano's Pizza" sign on top of his car. Schooled by the pizza delivery guys again. Of course, then I started wondering who was ordering pizza at 9:42am.

Disclaimer: This video is so much more about the scene and sounds than it is about the handiwork.

Love to see Great Blue Herons. They are actually very big... sometime3 feet tall. Looks like he is looking into a break in the ice, and will grab at a fish when he sees it. Very pretty scene. I am glad you see these things in the background of your life, and don't miss them. They are healing. Mo

LOVE this... of course. He called the Great Blue Heron a junk bird?! They are magnificent in flight, let alone on the ground. Wow!
