Wild Bird Wednesday


 
Wild Bird Wednesday (7) 
Join the fun @ 
 
This was an exciting day for me.  I have lived in this area for ten years and, though I have been told that the Green Heron is around, until this day I hadn't seen one ...
 
My friend and I took a walk in the state park and stopped by a small pool back amongst the trees and we were greeted by this handsome fellow ...
 
 





Then he moved back into the shadows ... But wait :)
 
There is another Green Heron Fishing further up on the edge of the pond ... two in one day.  How exciting ...
Gulp ...
Then the first one came back into the open so I finally got a clear shot ...
Icing on the cake ... we spotted a third Green Heron across the pond.   And before the day was done we had seen another on a different pond, but he flew before I could capture his picture.  What fun ...  :)

  1. What a great find! Don't you love it that you just "happened" to have your camera with you when you came across these lovely birds. Such a treat and really nice shots that you captured.

  8. I love seeing them every year & feel blessed when I do. They blend in so well, but you know I'm a good spotter! Nice shots!

  10. wow....seeing ONE is great for me...but seeing multiple ones on the very same day is incredible. I spotted a bird near the shore of the bay here, and it looks like a baby green heron, I'm hoping that is what it is...but I need to do some further comparison research before I'm near 100% sure. Y'know?

    I LOVED these images.

  12. What great shots! I've never had the opportunity to see one of these beautiful birds in person. You never know what beauty you're going to come across on a quiet walk. Thank you so much for sharing. Hugs, Edna B.
