Some video of a rabbit I encountered along the South Peachtree Creek PATH trail, 9 June 2017. It stuck around long enough for me to get this video. I was maybe four or five feet away, using the zoom.
Took this video on my first visit to Constitution Lake in Southwest Atlanta. I almost walked onto the deck without looking, which would most likely have scared it away, but fortunately, I caught sight of it in time. I could tell immediately it was some member of the heron family, but it took a search of my Audubon app to figure out exactly what it was. Visit my YouTube page for more videos like this.

I spent about fifteen minutes following a blue heron around a pond near my office this morning and making video clips, which I edited in iMovie. This is the finished product.
There’s been at least one, maybe multiple herons visiting the pond here for several years, but I’m not certain this is the same one I’ve encountered other times I took pictures or video. I believe there are at least two, maybe more, but they’re never here at the same time.
Here’s video of some mockingbirds I encountered while out walking near my office.
More info on these birds can be found at the Audubon Society’s Guide to North American Birds.
While walking around Century Center in Chamblee Monday, I encountered an odd looking little bird I’d never seen before. Investigation on the Internet uncovered that it’s a male zebra finch, which is not native to North America, but the species has been introduced, possibly as pets or for research.
I’m not sure how this one came to inhabit the area it’s in, but it seems fairly acclimated to humans, which isn’t necessarily a good thing.
It’s probably also a good thing it didn’t show up while the heron was hanging around last month.
These are some photos and videos of it I posted to my Instagram account, gmatt63.
There’s been a Great Blue Heron visiting a pond near where I work and I’ve had the opportunity to get some video and photos of it. I haven’t seen it the past few times I went over there this week, but one’s been dropping in there on occasion for a few years, so I’m sure one will be back at some point.
The first eight still photos are screen grabs from a couple of videos. Below the last video are a few close up photos and at the very bottom is some graphic art I created from a couple of photos.
