Green Heron 2

In yesterday’s post, perhaps I should not have been so surprised to find a Green Heron high in a tree. On Sunday, 24 August 2014, Erika and I came upon this Green Heron in the Carleton College arboretum. The bird flew up, high into a nearby conifer. I do not know if its out-stretched neck was to better observe us, or to provide camouflage among the tree limbs.
