PIC OF THE WEEK: 08/31/09 • PREVIOUS WEEKNEXT WEEKALL 2009 PICS

Bird Pic Of The Week

Great Blue Heron

(Ardea herodias)

Where: Gatesville, NC • Merchants Mill Pond

Notes: When I first heard about Merchants Mill Pond from my friend, Lee Adams, she talked about it with a certain excitement in her voice. Soon an opportunity came to explore this enchanting place, so I loaded my camera, canoe and paddles. It truly is as magical a place as I had been told it was. It was as if someone scooped up a chunk of the Everglades and plopped it down in the mid-Atlantic. A patch work of lily pads and rafts of aquatic plants spot the acres. Cypress trees are dispersed throughout this mystic enviornment, also know as the Lassiter Swamp. Old tree stumps rise from the shallow, tea colored water and become mini-ecoststems where vines and bushes sprout into tiny islands. This is where wildlife find shelter and a place to rest after a swim. Beaver, Musk Rats, Otters, Barred Owls, Yellow-throated and Parula Warblers, Wood Ducks and other wetland animals are quite at home in this aquatic wonderland.
