Birds - Green Heron
Class:Aves Order:Pelecaniformes Family:Ardeidae


Green Heron, Butorides virescens. The Green Heron is a beatiful bird! They have been seen "fishing"for prey with debris or insects, luring small fish in to snag with their strong bills. As their name suggests, they have dramatic green feathers on the back and forehead. These pictures of a Green Heron were taken at a pond behind Mill Valley High School in Shawnee Mission, KS.

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