Green Heron

This is one of two Green Herons I've ever seen.  This was at the Alaska Ferry Terminal in Bellingham, WA.





I hope to see more sometime.

Have you ever seen a Green Heron?

The Green Heron is my favorite heron.. It took a long time for me to even find my first Green Heron.. Great shots! I see you are linking up with my critter party, thank you! Have a happy weekend!

I can't say that I've ever seen a green heron. It's a very handsome bird! You captured a great shot.

We only have grey herons here in the UK JoAnn - we have them on our beck. I love the green one.

We just have the huge blue heron visit our ponds. Have not seen a green heron. They look smaller from your pictures. When the blue flies off I can hear his wins flapping. Magnificent bird.

I have seen a couple of night herons and I think they look a little like this one here; at least their size is similar - not as huge as the great blues. This one is a beauty. You got some very nice shots!

I've never seen a Green Heron. I don't think so. Before I met you I think I'd just glance at any water bird and say, "Oh, there's a heron!" But now I'll want to know the species and everything else there is to know about him/her!
