It Visits Twice a Day
Usually the heron (a Great Blue Heron) will go to our little pond, but after a very heavy rain, it will visit our ditches in the front and back yards. Normally, I can't get many or any pictures, but this time, a bag blowing on my deck disguised my movement for a good while. These were taken Easter morning.
You can see one walking here.
These are the sounds they make.
You can watch them close up while they court and nest here.
Herons are mentioned in the Bible:
Leviticus 11:19 "...the stork, any kind of heron, the hoopoe and the bat."
