The first great blue heron, Ardea herodias, I’ve ever seen at the field and stream visited this past December, 2016.
It never let me get close enough to get good footage, but its immense blue wings are clearly visible.
the footage from the first visit is even worse, but it was exciting to see this guy.
I found this interview I did with Eric Drooker on the Great Lawn in Central Park. Before I post it on the date it took place, I’m putting it here – because I think more people will hear it that way. Hope so.
I’ve added it to the Interviews tab as well.
