Watched the Great Blue Heron as it fed. It would stand totally still as it lowered its head to the water. The heron would wait for ripples on the surface from a small fish rolling. The in an instant it would shoot it's beak into the water and snatch the fish.
The Great Blue Heron (Ardea herodias) is a large wading bird in the heron family Ardeidae, common near the shores of open water and in wetlands over most of North and Central America as well as the West Indies and the GalÃƒÂ¡pagos Islands. It is a rare vagrant to Europe, with records from Spain, the Azores and England. An all-white Caribbean population was once known as a separate species, the Great White Heron.
