Hunkering Down With Ardea herodias

November 25th.December 8th.December 9th. You will notice that the water is iced over in the last picture, making fishing problematic. With fish and frogs out of the picture, what is this young Great Blue Heron eating? Whatever it can catch, presumably, including birds and small mammals. I wonder if it’s policing the Dell Water for rats? A host of bird feeders have lately appeared there, meaning there may be gleanings for rats to scarf up at night.

It’s going to be a short night for a rat when it runs into this dude.
