The Great Blue Heron

This Great Blue Heron lives a short distance away from my little farm here.  The big bird often hangs out on the shoreline opposite my place.  The neighbor has a number of cattle on the pasture there on that shoreline and I think that the Heron may like the company of the cows and steers.  Who can say?  Maybe it is just quieter or better fishing for this bird.  I had not seen the heron for about two weeks so I was quite pleased to see it the other day.  It was just standing still for many minutes.  Possibly resting.

The bird’s peace and quiet was abruptly interrupted when the farmer came along in his truck with a load of tasty fresh hay for the cows to eat.  Between the truck’s noise, the cattle mooing in their delight at having their dinner delivered, or the combination of both, the heron had enough and off it flew!  I took these pictures on January 3, 2012 in my yard (I was quiet and sort of hid behind the Oaks).   I have decided after two years to change the lay-out format of the blog.  I hope you’ll like it.   Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!
