Blue Hunter

public.jpeg

I captured this photo of this Great Blue Heron while hiking the Miami River Bike Trail. We were walking across the Robert J Shook Bridge, just south of the Farrington Reserve when we spotted her. She was so stealthy that I almost missed the shot.

Frankly, I am not sure if this was a male or a female. You really can’t tell the difference, at least I can’t. This is really close to where I believe there is a nest. I’m still trying to locate it.

Where Is That Nest?

We have been trying to locate the nest for this Blue Heron family for a couple weeks. Generally we know where it is located, but we have not been able to spot it.

One day last last week, we were looking for it, then turned a different direction, then there she was ... we missed the takoff again.

Misplaced Goose

public.jpeg

This is the Greater White-fronted Goose .. well, Geese. I have not seen any of these geese in Ohio, but they were gathered in large numbers around Richmond, Indiana. At first, I thought they were ducks, but once I zoomed in and could get a better view, I realized they were geese.

The greater white-fronted goose is a medium sized goose. They are usually seen west of the Mississippi, but not on this day!

More Detail!!

I had to post this photo of this Great Blue Heron. It so much better than the photo posted recently. This one was not flying nearly as fast, and it was an open lake, so I was able to track and capture a better shot. Love the details!
