Blue Heron, 24 April 2017, Chamblee, GA

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.

Blue Heron, Chamblee, GA, 13 April 2017

Some video of a blue heron hanging out at a pond in Chamblee, GA. I was using the zoom, but I still managed to get about five or six feet away while making the video.

I’m not sure if this is the same heron I normally see here. There’s a creek not far away, which is probably where it’s headed at the end.

There are also ducks and geese in the pond. The geese are mainly new this year, though there has been a gaggle of them hanging around the nearby Sam’s Club parking lot for a number of years. The swans have not been seen this year, so maybe these geese have taken their place for now.

Blue Heron, Atlanta, GA, 1 April 2014, #1

The pond near my office complex on Clairmont Road is home to numerous ducks, a couple of swans, and depending on the season, Canadian geese. Every now and then, a blue heron shows up. Last April, I was fortunate enough to catch some photos of one.

Blue Heron, Atlanta, GA, 1 April 2014, #2Whenever one shows up, it usually hangs out for a few days, then disappears. I’m more likely to see one in the Spring and early Summer.

Blue Heron, Atlanta, GA, 1 April 2014, #3I see them at Stone Mountain a lot, but I’m always glad to see one drop by the local pond.

When I was in Myrtle Beach in October, I managed to catch an Egret, a close relative of the blue heron, in action. Here’s some video of that.
