Great Blue Heron

These shots were taken at McVay Rock Beach by Brookings, Oregon, July 2012
by Kay Ekwall and JP Ekwall

This was an unexpected appearance as we hadn't expected to see a Great Blue Heron
stalking a gopher for lunch! We didn't even know that they ate gophers but upon
investigation later, found that was a special treat for them.

These are the largest birds in the Northern Americas, striking a majestic prescence,
quite impressive! More information from the Cornell Lab of Orinthology here, and voice from there also.
