Louisiana: Great Blue Heron by 


My 1st heron “in the wild.” :))

Was a fairly cooperative fellow, gave me about a minute before he flew away.

Great Blue Heron
Ardea herodias
“This bird has the unchallenged distinction of being the largets member of the Heron family occurring in North america, since the Great White Heron is now considered merely a subspecies of the Great Blue Heron. It stands about four feet high when the head is raised/ Size alone distinguishes it from other herons whose body color is not white. The call notes are a series of low, hoarse croaks that have been described as frahnk, frahnk, frahnk
The species is statewide in distribution and a permanent resident that is seen regularly in small numbers. In winter, nonmigratory populations in the southern part of the state are supplemented by northern visitors.”—George H. Lowery, Jr., 1974, Louisiana Birds
