Great Blue


A Great Blue Heron (Ardea herodias) away from the water. It’s unusual to see them on dry land, for me anyway! Perhaps it was hunting mice!

Blowing in the Wind


A Black-crowned Night-Heron (Nycticorax nycticorax) perched in it’s usual daylight perch, deep in the branches. This one seems a bit annoyed with it’s head plumes blowing in the wind. It had been sleeping until the plumes started whipping about!

Wing Span


A Great Blue Heron (Andea herodias) in a local farmers field hunting for summer. We stopped on the road and I guess it didn’t like our presence, even though we were a distance away. It started to leave and then decided to stay after this great wing display!

In the Shadows


A juvenile Black-crowned Night-Heron (Nycticoras nycticorax) hiding in the shadows.

Precarious Perch


A Great Blue Heron making itself comfortable on a nesting box at the bird sanctuary.

On the Hunt


A Great Blue Heron, having some success catching little silver fish in the marsh. ┬áDon’t know how many of those little guys make up a meal!



A Great Blue Heron, (GBH) perched on a deadfall birch tree.  This bird had quite stunning colours.
