still-sound 148. Heron

This bird has been appearing in the field next to my apartment building the last few days.  This morning it is perched on a tree next to my balcony.  It's so close that I opened the sliding door very carefully as to not make too much noise.  

I think it's a heron.  It's still there as I write this.  Perfectly still, like a statue.


  1. It's a Great Blue Heron (Ardea herodias).

    1. Thanks Mike. Good to know. I wish there was an app where you could point at a bird, flower or tree and have it identified immediately. I'm always wondering about these things.
