Green Herons out and about

For most of the summer we only manage to spot Green Herons in flight. I know they’re here, hunting in ponds and streams, even nesting and roosting in trees, but they’re kind of secretive.

Last week at Rollins we saw three juvenile herons acting very un-heronlike, perching out in the open. They flew from snag to snag and one even landed on a utility wire.

The streaked necks would give them away as juveniles, if their behavior didn’t tip you off first.

Share the birds, share the love!

    Nice photos, Amy. Green Herons are difficult to photograph. The first one should be framed!
