STOPS ALONG THE WAY

GREEN HERONS (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

25 Comments

I took these herons within a few days of each other. I’m not sure if they’re the same bird. The wispy head feathers on only one makes me suspect not. Some years we have spotted as many as three at the lake, other years only one. Of the three varieties of herons that migrate here over the summer months I think the green herons have the most striking colouring. When they’re busy fishing they’re not easily disturbed and ignore cameras pointed in their direction.

  2. Great images Belinda! They look a little similar to a species here called the Striated Heron, which is often difficult to get photos of.

  5. I’d love to have green herons nearby to photograph. We have the great blue herons here on the west coast. They’re beautiful birds, but you always miss what you don’t have, right?
