    Heron--Port St Lucie, FL

    I know this fella is a Heron but I am not sure if it is a Great Blue Heron or a little Blue Heron. I am leaning towards the Little Blue Heron. I do know that it was a beautiful bird to watch as it was hunting.

    I saw him fly, and I knew where he was going, and I got the timing right... I post a lot on Facebook, and Great Blue Herons outdraw just about anything else.
