Green Heron & Amazing Neck
Viewed this Green Heron at Carillon Stonegate Pond.
Just as I remembered: short, stout body and no discernible neck. Really interesting bird - especially since we all know what a Great Blue Heron is.
But, suddenly, it's neck began to grow. And grow. And grow. It grew until this Green Heron could see above the tall reeds and grasses.
Apparently, the Green Heron has this unique ability - perhaps, super power - to elevate its neck when alarmed!
Some quite interesting birds and wildlife drop in on Carillon Stonegate Ponds.
Take a hike and see what you can find – and identify!
