What a cute little bird...when you say Heron...I think of the big ones right a way. Love the two bottom photos with the reflections!
What a reflection! Looks great!
I have never seen a green heron...we have blue herons....I just love his color! Wonderful close ups...you really captured the personality of this guy! Awesome!
I'm with Janis - I tend to think of herons as great big birds. This chap (chapess) is lovely. I love his muted colours and the photos with reflections are beautiful.
Beautiful shots! Love the teal color on the bird.
Lovely pictures !My absolute favorite is nr 4 there you see the bird reflecting in the water.Don´t believe we have these birds in Sweden ?I have never seen one , that I know for sure :)
Gorgeous shots of the Green Heron, they are my favorites. The reflections are awesome, well done.
Wonderful photos. And to get within photo striking distance!
Fantastic photos! Wonderful close-ups!An English Girl Rambles
WOW...I never knew that herons are also small birds. I only have seen the big blue ones. He's adorable!
Love the detail of the feathers in the first one - amazing closeup!
Last summer a great blue heron was fishing the pond when two green herons flew in, landed in a tree and started what sounded like barking. The great blue responded and I think it was an argument until the blue got tired and left. I love these little guys and your photos show how beautifully colored they are, yet blend in so well......Michelle
Stunning photos! Someday I'll be able to capture one of these critters. They are across the road and I've seen them but never with the camera.
What a gorgeous bird - and what gorgeous photos, too! Love the one where he's sitting almost horizontally in a most un-heronlike pose!
these are AMAZING!!
We don't have herons here. He is really amazing!Do you know what the other bird is? We have been studying the birds at my house; a short move just a few minutes away from our old house yielded us entirely new birds! We still see house finches (though only a few; before we saw mostly house finches in our yard). The day we moved in we had a roadrunner in our yard! He has never come back, though we did have a burrowing owl who liked to hang out in our garden in the early evenings. There are some I can't find in my bird book at all, including what appears to be an oriole, and a brown bird very similar to the one you photographed here.
I've never seen a bird like that. I LOVE the colors.
Amazing! We have two that nest in the woods right next to ouru house, even though the swamp is 1/4 mile down the road. I love the sound they make. And I love your photos!
How big is it? Eastern Phoebe perhaps?
(My other thought, if its like about 5 1/2 inches it could be a least flycatcher.??)I'm always guessing wrong.
Love the last shots with the reflection. That is an intense looking bird!
