Birds - Great Blue Heron
Class:Aves Order:Pelecaniformes Family:Ardeidae


Great Blue Heron, Ardea herodias. You've probably seen the Great Blue Heron standing very still at the water's edge - looking for fish. You may catch a glimpse of them slowly lifting in to the air and flying low over the water. They are large birds, standing around 4 feet tall and with up to a 6 foot wingspan! They are blue-gray in color with a black stripe over the eyes. They hunt fish and small mammals. These photographs were taken at a pond/lake off of 159th Street in Johnson County, Kansas, Heritage Park in Olathe and at Fleming Park in Lee's Summit.

All species pages are currently being updated with more useful descriptions and information.
