    Great Blue Heron (Ardea herodias wardi) with a freshwater drum. It looked large enough to share but it just turned its back and walked away (lol).

    Great Blue Herons Have A Third Eyelid, (new blog post) It wasn't until I was out on the Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge a couple years ago when I learned from my photos that great blue herons, like many birds do, have a third eyelid. It makes sense that they have a third eyelid but I never...

    This was taken yesterday morning during my paddling trip on the Rideau River. Comparing with the one that I'd uploaded not too ago: one that was taken back in September of 2020, they really looked like the same great blue heron.

    This bird was stationary on this spot a bit into the reed-bed for at least 1 hour. Much of the time was spent preening.

    Great blue heron (juvenile)

    We were driving to an appointment when I noticed this juvenile Great Blue heron on a branch overlooking the swamp on the side of the road. We got out of the appointment an hour later, and it took me another 30 minutes to get home to get the camera. I figured there was no way he'd still be there...

    Great blue heron (juvenile) on patrol
