For the past 3 weeks we have been visited every day by a majestic great blue heron. It flies in and walks around the property. It even perched on the top of one of our garages for awhile.
It has been spotted as early as 8 am and as late as 4 pm. Great blue herons are quite large birds, up to 4 ft. It has a slow, measured walk and a decided squawk if it gets spooked and flies away. In flight it is quite impressive.
Our residents enjoy observing this wild visitor, and all the other bird species we host.
