A Great Blue Heron Goes Fishing

We took a stroll in Mentor’s Veterans Park this weekend and were rewarded by seeing a great blue heron (I believe it is a juvenile) standing on the dock, along with several people who were fishing. I assume the heron was doing some fishing of its own. It stood very still and allowed me to get very close and seemed completely unfazed by the others fishing (who were also making a lot of noise). Great blue herons are quite large birds – this one was at least 4 feet tall. Here are a few photos.
