What a beautiful bird!

Great Blue Heron have uniquely shaped neck vertebrae that allow them to curl their neck into an S shape to allow for a more aerodynamic flight and a better advantage for quickly striking prey at a distance. One Great Blue Heron was found in this year's Bird Count in Central Park.

Great blue herons are common near open water and wetlands over most of North and Central America, as well as the Caribbean and Galápagos Islands. They are, however, only rare vagrants to Europe.


I have so many of these where i live in the Appalachians. They are fun to watch.
