Bird Pic Of The Week

Green Heron

(Butorides virescens)

Where: 13026 Jog Rd, Delray Beach, FL • Wakodahatchee Wetlands

Notes: The chestnut and irredescent jade scaly plumage of this little heron give it a unique look. At only about seventeen inches long this bird is relatively small for a member of the heron family. It typically creeps from branch to branch along the water’s edge in search of small fish, frogs and other aquatic prey around small wetlands in low-lying areas. It usually keeps its neck tucked tight against its body, but can extend it in the blink of an eye to spear food. It is one of the few species or birds that uses tools. It will take a piece if bait and set it along the edge of the water, inviting a fish into striking range. The Green Heron is a year round coastal resident along the southern United States and Central America. During the breeding season its territory extends northward and inland toward Canada. This bird was particularly cooperative as it crept up some nearby vegetation to nearly eye level, revealing the bright gold glow of its eyes. The rusty leaves against the distant greenery adds both color texture contrast to this image.
