Great Blue Heron Landing
I swear I saw a pterodactyl. That’s what the Great Blue Heron reminds me of with it’s majestic flight. Soaring they’re gorgeous. Landing they’re awkward.
We’ve been seeing a lot of this one recently. Above it is about to land in a big maple tree near our upper pond where we have trout.
Great Blue Heron in Maple Tree
Above the heron is sitting in the maple tree above the upper pond eyeing Kavi, one of our livestock guardian dogs. Kavi is eyeing the heron right back which is why it doesn’t come down to fish.
I think the reason we’ve been seeing the heron so much in the past month is not because we have a pond of trout, which has been there for quite a while. Rather it is that we recently cleared the new fields which makes for a scenic flight path. I notice that the heron prefers to fly along pastures, marshes and road lines rather than over the forested areas.
