Heron

(Toledo, OH) I have been seeing, or perhaps noticing, a number of herons around the Ottawa River over the past few years.

I came across a heron on the Ottawa near the campus of the University of Toledo, eyes locked on some underwater prey. The bird sat still for over a minute before plunging into the river, snagging some hapless creature, and flying away.

It appeared to be a Great Blue Heron, though its colorings were muted by the low angle of the sun and my distance from the bird.
