Green Heron, Dunnellon, FL

Green Heron

Here are some of the various kinds of herons I have spotted here in Florida.  I have seen the common Great Blue Heron; the Great White Heron; the Little Blue Heron in both the blue and the white phases; the Tri-colored Heron; and the Green Heron.  I have not photographed a Yellow-crowned Night Heron but I did spot one at Sanibel Island a couple of years ago.

Around The Villages, Florida area, I often see the Great Blue Herons, the Little Blue Herons and the Tri-colored Herons.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the photo.  Enjoy!

  1. Good morning, I love all the waders. But, the Little Blue and the Green Herons have always been my favorites. Great photos and post. Enjoy your day!

  2. you are in prime birding country! 🙂

    • Hi Tex, I agree! We have a lot of ponds, marshes, and lakes within five miles of my home here and most have a number of interesting critters. I am glad! By the way, I saw a pair of hawks in a tree along my street this afternoon. Have a fine day tomorrow!

  3. What a pleasure to see a whole collection of herons! Excellent photos too!
