Bird of the Day: Great Blue Heron (Ardea herodias), revisited

It’s that time of the year for great blue heron sightings, so if it shows up as bird of the day more than once, don’t blame me.

We saw this one on the lakeshore during our afternoon walk, near sunset.

When it leaned forward, the plume on the back of its head stuck out.

 

 

I moved to take photos from a different angle.
