The Great Blue Heron is fortunate that it nests high up in trees and not along the shoreline. There are Great Blue Herons at Radnor Lake near my house and sometimes we have visitors who perch in the walnut trees across the alley.
Still, these Herons hunt for aquatic creatures all along the Gulf of Mexico shores and will inevitably be affected by the oil gushing into the Gulf. Read today's statement on Gulf Coast birds by Frank Gill, interim president of Audubon.
Not the most pleasant sound, you can hear their calls by clicking here and here.
I just learned that Liz Pearson is making beautiful paintings of birds these days. Visit her blog to see.
