Calling A Female, Great Blue Heron

Calling A Female, Great Blue Heron

A long, deep, raspy call. I should add loud too.

The males have a spot in the rookery, at the very least they are there waiting. Now the calls to attract passing females start.

When they throw their head back like this you have to stop and listen.

Sound travels here and I can hear them calling before I even get to the swamp.
