Our Resident Great Blue Goes Fishing!

Copy of IMG_5736

Ron Shields took an amazing action sequence of the Great Blue Heron catching a fish in more ways than one last week.

Writes Ron: "Attached please find a series of images from Wednesday afternoon featuring the local Great Blue Heron demonstrating its unique fishing abilities in the cove at the beginning of the Marsh
Discovery Trail. 

"I'm assuming the meal is a [former] bluegill."

The sequence goes from speared fish to the fish tossed in the air to the fish caught between the bill.

The photos are a little raw, so to speak, and possibly not for the overly squeamish, so we will post the "food chain" shots on the jump.

 (Thanks, Ron!)
