View Full Version : A Couple OF Bird Shots

Caught the Great Blue Heron quite a few times in the last couple weeks. The odd thing is that two consecutive days in a row I had photos of him with a chipmunk in his beak. I knew that herons ate meat like frogs, fish etc., but I had no idea they hunted chipmunks. In the one photo he has one of the chipmunks in his beak. The Red-Tailed Hawk is very common, but this was my first one in a photo. I moved this camera to a new location on Saturday. Going to miss all the critters that pass through again until September.
