Great Blue Heron

Great blue herons are migratory birds that go south in the winter and come back north in early spring. They have been known to migrate amazing distances--even as far as Alaska down to Mexico and back! The great blue heron builds its nest high in a tree to get away from any potential predators. When they are hunting, they stand in the water, very still, or walk very slowly and quietly looking for food which can be anything from fish or crustaceans to birds or mice.  Great blue herons are great hunters and will either eat their catch whole right away, or bring it back to shore, where they will beat it against the ground until it is dead so that they can eat it in smaller pieces.
