Another surprise Green Heron, first time to photograph this bird at Chassahowitzka WMA. This crow sized bird is a smart hunter. They have a unique baiting style behavior, they drop feathers, twigs or even insects on the water surface to lure fish within their striking distance.
Why they call this bird Green Heron…. their greenish-black cap, a greenish back.
These are really neat looking plants. They have three “hairy or furry” leaves” which pretty little pink/purple flowers emerge from. They have huge basal ( basal leaves on a plant is connected to the lowest part of the stem) leaves
These have started blooming in July and this is the first time I noticed them blooming at Chassahowitzka WMA.
