My birding buddy Shawn and I were at the Forest History Center in Grand Rapids, MN when we saw this Green Heron. It is a medium-sized bird, about 18-22 inches tall. Green Herons are found over most of the eastern half of the United States in summer. They like wetlands, and often sit motionless along the side of a pond waiting for small fish to swim by. They’ve been known to place some type of food on the surface of the water to attract fish.
