Once I see birds in the same location a few times I always glance around while passing by. I did not see the Heron at first. I did notice his reflection so I looked around.
Branches hang low over a marsh here, on the other side is a swamp area. Perfect for hiding and fishing.
It’s so easy to miss them here and I’m sure they are rarely noticed.
Green Heron sightings started slow this year but now I’m seeing more, just too far for decent shots. If they stay around I’ll bump into them a few more times.
