Captain Rick: This Great Blue Heron cools itself in the shade of a pine tree by the pond at the Civic Center in Gilbert, Arizona. Don’t be fooled…it is not looking to the right…its right eye is focused directly on me as I inched ever so close to this beautiful bird that stands over a meter tall. When I came one inch too close, this giant bird would fly with a wing span of about 2 meters. It is one of the most magnificent birds to enjoy along the canals, lakes and ponds in Arizona’s Valley of the Sun.
