Great Blue Herons – what’s not to like?

Great Blue Herons walk with a stately grace. And seeing one fly, with its slow wing beats, is a treat. Martin  and Rene Steinpress recently saw one on a bluff on The Sea Ranch while they were walking on one of the public access trails.

Great Blue Herons eat small mammals, and they eat fish too. Here is one of my favorite photos of a GBH, just taking off from the water. This photo was taken by Paul Brewer.
