Picture of the Elusive Blue Heron on Shellpot Creek

Finally captured in focus pictures of the blue heron that sometimes flies up the creek to us.  This bird is so sensitive that any movement inside the house causes it to fly off.  The white herons are much less easily scared off.   Other sightings were just as difficult.

The blue heron was still hiding behind a rock but you can see hits head and upper coloring pretty well.  This bird is likely a Great Blue Heron.  The white herons that we see from time to time are likely actually Great Egrets.
