Great Blue Heron

Great Blue Heron Overview
A large heron species typically found wading in shallow water in fresh and marine coastal ecosystems. This species has incredible vision, allowing them to hunt day and night for fish. While flying, the Great Blue Heron folds the neck into an “S” shape and trails its long legs behind.

Fun Fact

Despite their large size, they only weigh between 5 and six pounds. * Great Blue Herons hunt day and night as they have a high percentage of rod-type photoreceptors in their eyes that improve night vision. * With their specially shaped neck vertebrae, Great Blue Herons quickly strike prey from a distance.
