Green Heron

Another very patient wading bird, the Green Heron. I actually timed this one. Just a couple of blinks, this bird stood still for over 3 minutes. That’s a long time, but I think the Great Blue Heron beats him in the stand like a statue competition.

  1. When I observe water birds such as the Green Heron hunting, I come away humbled at their patience. I enjoyed the video and your lovely photographs.

    I’m not sure how I have missed your blog in the past but look forward to following you in the future!
