Ardea Herodias: The Great Blue Heron

Great Blue Herons live in both freshwater and saltwater habitats, and also forage in grasslands and agricultural fields, where they stalk frogs and mammals. 
They eat nearly anything within striking distance along the Carmel River, including fish, amphibians, reptiles, small mammals, insects, and other birds.
Great Blue Heron numbers are stable and have been increasing in the U.S. since 1966.
