Cool. I've never seen one before.
Awesome. I love herons.
We have a blue heron that hangs out around here . . . in a cow pasture. Go figure. (There IS a little creek nearby, so that must be what attracts the bird.)
Priscilla: No, they like cow pastures. When I was a kid, my grandfather called them tick birds, because they would stand on the backs of the cows and eat the ticks off of them.
Whoa, I didn't know that. In that case, herons are my heroes because disease-carrying ticks can be a problem around here certain times of the year.
Sorry, he didn't call them tick birds; he called them cow birds, which was actually not a correct thing to call them, because there is actually a thing called a cowbird. But what he called cow birds were actually cattle egrets:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cattle_egretEgrets are in the heron family.
