This is a blue heron on the Trinity river.  They are large and beautiful birds, very majestic.  When they fly it is spectacular.  Herons and cranes are often feeding here, also ducks, and geese.   But the blue heron is one of our favorites.  It was a favorite especially of my mother.  Since she passed, I have seen the blue heron often.  The bird always amazes me.

 

 

Click below to and you can hear the call of the great blue heron.  I hear them sometimes and at night too. They have a croaking call, it can be quite loud too.

Blue herons are large wading birds.  The ones around here startle very easily and they won’t let you get very close.

We love the blue herons on the Trinity river.  These birds are amazing!  To see them fly is something, they are quite large.

They are very graceful, yet very awkward at the same time. This bird did not seem to mind me,  I was were far enough away, he merely moved to another branch when he noticed me. As he moved his wings I captured some of the blue color, other wise, he blends pretty well with the brush.
