Great Blue Heron Hunting

Great Blue Heron Hunting in a Stream

I was rather surprised to see a Great Blue Heron hunting in this outlet stream from one of the small ponds at Magnolia Plantation and Gardens.

I’ve seen Green Heron here before, but never the larger birds in with this tangle of downed trees and brush.

His footing was a bit precarious and I didn’t see him catch anything. After a few minutes he flew to the pond where at least there was more room for him to maneuver.
