The Great Blue Heron is found all over the north American continent. It enjoys streams, rivers and ponds. It enjoys fishing at dusk and dawn.
There is also a great white heron - the white version of the bird.
I recently saw a Great Blue Heron in a stream. Here is my photo of the area, taken from the bridge over the stream.
Now here are some closeups I was able to get, zooming in.
Great blue herons can have a wingspan of 72" or more!
