Beautiful Crane

This is a Great Blue Heron and he comes to the creek outside my window a couple of times a year - that I notice.  This time I was able to open the screen window (which squeaked terribly) without him flying away.  They are very shy birds and don't like to be observed - so long and elegant.  He hunts crayfish, frogs & fish - all of which are down there.  This one looks to be about 3.5 to 4 feet tall.  Crazy big.  Then when they do fly away they look like what I imagine a pterodactyl would look like.  Huge wings and a swoopy gate to their fly.  A beautiful bird and I hope he comes again.

Check this out and place cloth bags in your car so you have them on the fly.
