Blue Heron

Blue Herons are very common. They are a very patient "stand-and-wait" predator, waiting for an unsuspecting fish to swim by. They'll eat fish, snakes, amphibians, and rodents by swallowing them whole. Their graceful flight is characterized by slow, steady wingbeats and their necks folded back over their shoulders with their legs extended behind them.
