Bird of the Week: Great Blue Heron

By January 24, 2013

Follow me on:

This week's featured bird is a great one that won't give birders the blues because they can't find it - the great blue heron is the most widespread heron in North America. Easily identified both on the ground and in flight, this solitary bird is often one of the first wading birds on a birder's life list.
