Migratory bird of the day Great Blue Heron

The Great Blue Heron, a wading bird that can reach 6 feet in length, is a magnificent specimen. They can reach 4 feet or more with their long, lanky necks and legs. This heron is the largest in North America and the Caribbean. This bird is grayish-blue overall with a large, sharp yellow bill. The black stripes run from the top of the eye to the back and lead to short black plumes. The crown is white for adults, while it is gray or mixed with gray for juveniles.

Great Blue Herons fly at a slow, deep wing beat. Their long necks are often tucked in but their long legs trail behind. You can also see the contrast between the black feathers on their wings and the gray plumage of the rest of the wings and back. The Great Blue Heron also has a white race, the “Great White Heron”, which is similar to the Great Egret but larger and with a longer bill. It also has pale legs. Texas Birds

The Great Blue Heron is a bird with a wide range

The Great Blue Heron can be found in most of North America and is present all year round on many Caribbean islands, such as the Bahamas, Cuba, Hispaniola and Puerto Rico. The Great Blue Herons are mostly winter visitors to the region. However, they can be found on most of the islands between October and April.

Great Blue Herons can be found in freshwater and saltwater wetlands. They mostly eat fish but also small mammals, reptiles, and birds. They use their bill as a tweezer to grab smaller prey. Their dagger-like bills allow them to capture larger prey like frogs or fish and then swallow the whole prey. This handsome bird is often seen alone. You can see it waiting in shallow water for the right moment to grab a meal. Find out more about this species including its range and photos.

The Great Blue Heron is a color-loving bird!
