Green Heron

I spotted this green heron clawing its way across the rocks at Bird Key Park in Sarasota. I love that elongated beak and maroon chest!

This shot looks straight out of an ornithology guidebook. Great!

That's a cool shot! I'm impressed you knew what he was called! :D I haven't seen one of those yet, but if I do I will know what it is! We used to go to Bird Key Park all the time. My husband used to race jet skis and would practice there every weekend!

Oh, cool! Nice photo. I have never seen one of these.

Lyndsey: When I was trying to identify the black crowned night heron, I saw a photo of a green heron and logged it in the 'ol memory bank.
