Interesting Green Heron.

While thinking about something
to post, I came across this very
interesting bird. look close at the
photos because they are not
very clear.
Above and below, if you click on the
Photo you'll see a dragonfly in the
Herons beak.


Check out the feet on this Heron. The
feet have joints much like the joint's
on our finger's that can wrap around a
limb or branch, also there seems to be
long claw like nails. It would be hard to 
make this bird let go of it's perch

I love the birds in the Heron family. We see them occasionally here but they tend to be a little shy.
