Nature Walks – A New Heron

We have lived in our house for 16 years, and there is still always something new to see. The other day, we were walking Juneau and I discovered yet another new bird, or at least new for me. He was pretty far away and was hidden in a tree branch, so he wasn’t easy to see, but I zoomed in with my lens and lo and behold, I discovered we had a new heron in the tree. Larry didn’t see him, and thought I was seeing things until I showed him the pictures. Our new heron is called a Black Crowned Night Heron. He is smaller than our normal blue or grey herons, but just as handsome. The name comes from the fact that they are usually quiet during the day and are more active at night. Black Crowned Night Herons are carnivores, just like other herons. They like to eat frogs, fish, small mammals and even other smaller birds.

He is definitely on the lookout for something good.

I just love nature, and all the nature that I literally find right in my own back yard. Mother Nature has given us some beautiful gifts.

Have a great day and make everyday great. Stay safe and stay well. ‘Til next time.
