Green Heron in its classic hunting pose. Last year in Florida I saw two of them from a distance and got my first views of these small herons. This year in Florida they eluded me entirely. But we have them here during the spring/summer and I had hoped that one would eventually visit me while I was in my blind at the pond. This past Saturday was my day! This heron flew into my area, just across the pond, and walked and hunted on the log system in the water throughout my area. It was a real treat to watch this small hunter in action. June 6, 2015.
