Great Blue Heron By Owen Gromme

By Owen Gromme

Great Blue Heron by Owen Gromme

Herons attempt to swallow their prey whole, they have been known to choke to death at times. Their long, S-shaped necks makes it difficult for them to swallow fish which are too long or large.

One of the fascinating Heron facts is that even though they like to hunt alone and prefer tall trees, they generally make nests in low shrubs and in colonies.

The primary diet of Herons consists of fish. However, they can quickly adapt to eating other animals like mice, frogs, lizards, snakes, dragonflies, grasshoppers, salamanders, crabs, shrimp, crayfish, small mammals, invertebrates, amphibians, and other aquatic insects.

Blue herons are quieter as compared to other similar species. They make calling sounds such as "kraak", "fraunk", and "ar" when they are interrupted while flying, feel agitated or threatened close to their nests, and when they come in contact with other species respectively.

The Herons play an important role in the ecosystem. These birds help control population of fish and insects from various habitats. Also, herons are a source of food for animals like red-tailed hawks, bears, raccoons, eagles, and turkey vultures.
