Displaying Great Blue Herons




While visiting the Venice Rookery, the Great Blue Herons were in the middle of their breeding season. A couple of nests had chicks in them, while others were building nests and the birds displaying to attract mates. Here are a couple of displaying Great Blue Herons: Bird behavior at breeding time can be exciting to […]

Tri-colored Birdie




I photographed a few TriColored Herons (Egretta tricolor) along the Anhinga Trail. Along the Anhinga Trail, the Tri’s were pretty tranquil, usually quietly waiting for a fish to swim within easy grasp. Here are a few images I captured in the Everglades: At one time, the Tricolored Heron was know as the Louisiana Heron. Guess […]

Fun Friday: There Goes the Neighborhood!




Today’s “Fun Friday” post comes from the Venice bird rookery, located in the middle of Venice, Florida. As I photographed the nesting and roosting birds at the rookery, there constantly seemed to be some action going on at the far end of the island, so I picked up my equipment and moved down to see […]

Early Riser




The early bird doesn’t always get the worm … but he sure gets a great seat to watch the sunrise! Black-crowned Night Heron (Nycticorax nycticorax) at sunrise (made in my kayak)

Florida Green Herons




These Green Heron (Butorides virescens) images were made a few years ago when I was photographing in Florida. We stayed for a couple of days with some great friends of ours (Thanks, Tom and Lindsay!) who live in St. Petersburg. Not far from their house was a neat little place where we found some alligators, […]

Night Heron




While going through my vast library of images to find some images for a client, I ran across some images I made from the kayak a couple of years ago and had never posted. So, today’s featured subject is the night heron. In particular, a juvenile Yellow-crowned Night Heron. While kayaking a local Missouri waterway, […]

Great Blue Heron Rookery




Directly behind the osprey nest at the Lee Metcalf NWR (SW Montana), there is a small Great Blue Heron Rookery. As I watched and photographed the osprey activity at the nest, I was often distracted from the loud and intense squawking that the juvenile herons were making in the rookery nests. Whenever an adult Great […]

Breakfast Time (Re-post)




(This post originally published in September 2010) Last Friday I had a wonderful kayak outing. One of the best “finds” was a Green Heron (Butorides virescens). These birds are usually very skittish in my area, often leaving upon observing a human. But this one, although cautious, was not overly concerned with my presence, and the […]
