November 2, 2011 (Lake Murray) --This is one of my favorite birds. It’s also John Vanderpoel’s #183 bird on his 2011 “Big Year” bird list. More on that later.
The Green Heron is an odd sort of bird, short and stocky; it reminds me of a cartoon caricature from the 1960’s. It is smart, tough, and intolerant of other birds--even other herons!
