These large birds reside year round in Colorado but they are easiest to find in the warmer months. A mild day this past weekend brought out this beautiful one as it kept watch on a small pond.
These birds have small bodies but are quite tall with massive wingspans that can reach over 6 feet wide. Oftentimes found along shorelines of lakes and calm areas of rivers, Great Blue ?Herons are very adept at plucking fish from the waters.
