Great Blue Heron (December 31 2011)

Posted by birder on Sunday, January 1, 2012
I went out to Iona Island this morning (December 31 2011). Not many birds were up and about, but when I was leaving I noticed a Great Blue Heron hunting. While I was watching, it caught a rodent and swallowed it whole. The bird provided a great series of images. View the slide show to view photos (10 of them) that I took of the bird. When the heron was finished hunting, it walked slowly across the road, while cars stopped to wait for the bird to cross.
