Picture of the Day: August 22, 2013

There's a park a couple of blocks down the street from my apartment in Brockport.  Today, as I passed the park on my way into the office, I spotted a member of one of my favorite bird species.  You probably can't see him in the photo above, but you can definitely see him here:

This great blue heron cautiously eyed me as I laid down my backpack to get my camera, then took these few photos.  He held his ground, but I'm sure that if I tried to get too close, he would have flown away.

Of course, Cornell has its own Great Blue Herons; you can check in on them here.
