I was able yesterday to get some fairly decent video footage of some great blue herons that are nesting near our house on the walking trail that goes right by a river. I think it’s amazing that these large magnificent birds would build nests in the middle of a city where they’re so close to people and the noise of traffic, but they did.
Normally, you see them standing alone and solitary at the edge of the creeks and river’s banks looking for small fish which is their primary food source. They are so large, and I did not know they built their nests at the top of very, very tall trees. The nests are large, two to three feet in diameter, and they are sitting on their eggs. I love to watch them take off and land on their nest. Their wing span looks to be about at least three feet wide, maybe more. They are a grey blue in color with an orange colored beak.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy the video and have a blessed day. Praise God!
