I’d love to see one like that down here in Southern Ohio.

It was a privilege to see such a beautiful bird. They’re pretty small, and maybe they even frequent your area. . . . believe it or not, it’s easy to walk right by them without noticing because they are so still.

We have some herons. I captured one from a distance awhile back. At first, I thought it was fake because it was so still.

The still birds are the only ones I can manage to photograph! We are lucky to get many different herons at the Ponds near where I live.
Great to see your blog flourishing, by the way. I stopped in lately (the post with the guys on the roof) and was astonished at how it had grown.

Check out that long and very sharp looking middle talon on that bird !…….A very, very interesting looking heron.

You are on to something, Harley. In fact, this is one of the few other “tool-using” animals besides homo sapiens. According to what I read, the green heron is one that “fishes with bait,” using worms, insects, twigs, and other items to attract its prey. Interesting, no?
