Great Blue Herons are one of my favorite birds. They are icons of perfect stillness combined with intense awareness. Their colors are exquisite, and their lines are elegant. The loud croaking voice is startling, and inspires an ancient, prehistoric feel to these birds. During mating season in early spring, I’ve seen as many as 25 herons at a time wheeling high in the sky over Gooseberry Point. Seeing a heron is always a magical event, and I never tire of watching them fish near our home.
