Green Heron

An unexpected visitor not far from home. The Green Heron is ususally found much further south. I've seen them before in southern Utah. There are a few reports of sightings in the Salt Lake area but there hasn't been one for several years. The bird is quite secretive and blends in well with its surroundings. You could walk right past one and never notice it.

Nice shot Norm. We have had these beauties nesting in Brooklyn's Prospect Park for the last few years. Keep posting birds!

It's nice to see birds you don't regularly get to see. We more often see Black-crowned Night Herons and Great Blue Herons. So many birds so little time.

We have a couple of these guys. Took forever to ID them. First I thought they were a new duck cuz they hung around the little pond. Then I figured it couldn't be a duck cuz it was flying up and sitting in the big oak tree, besides it didn't LOOK like a duck. Don't know about secretive tho - our's fav perch is on the roof of the bunkhouse right out there in front of God and everybody.

Stunning picture. Who'd a thunk you'd turn out to be such an amazing photog.

I'd love to see a picture of your Bunkhouse Heron. While true that most ducks don't roost in trees there are exceptions both Wood Ducks and Buffleheads roost in trees.
