Great Blue Heron

Great Blue Herons are so common at the Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge that I tend to ignore them. I might see a dozen during the four mile auto-tour. This time around a car ahead of me was blocking the road, stopped while watching the Heron. As I watched the Heron speared a rodent and swallowed it. It was a fascinating spectacle. I had my video camera so I turned it on and waited… sure enough the Heron found another rodent… this time I had the camera running and came up with this video. Take a minute and watch how the Heron deals with lunch.
