Fishy business


The Little Blue Heron (Egretra caerulea) is an unusually quiet bird.

Here’s one being fed at Twin Rivers Park in a section of Port Salerno known as Rocky Point.  The vid was taken on the boardwalk that you see top right in this aerial view.

And here’s a vid, taken in the same location, of a White Heron eating a piece of bait fed to him by a fisherman who was done for the day.

At first I thought it was a lesser Egret, also known as a yellow-billed Egret, but I would venture, after looking more closely, that it’s actually a Great Egret.

I added a snippet of Kamal’s Ripples to the audio track for dramatic effect.

  1. Can’t wait to see your great blue heron! This small park is on Rocky Point. Just Google Twin Rivers Park. Sometimes there are bottle-nosed dolphins swimming around and occasionally you will see a bald eagle in the distance over the blue hole in the preserve. If you can’t deal with Google, take Old Dixie going north from where you are, then go around the roundabout at Cove, stay on Old Dixie for a minute or two, and bear right at the Stop light. Go right on Horseshoe (in front of the big marina), go up a ways, and turn left on Kubin Avenue (there will be a small sign announcing). The park is at the end of Kubin on the right. Watch out for the bump on the narrow road leading to the water.

  2. Love those birds!!!! How do you get to that spot? I am working on a great blue heron needlepoint right now!!! Cheers Mary Ellen
