Union Bay Watch: Great Blue Prey

With the help of Seattle Audobon the Great Blue Heron was selected as the Seattle City Bird in 2003. The “S” shaped curve of the neck and head somehow seems appropriate.

Under the circumstances it makes sense that we should know a bit about what the Great Blue will eat. If you would like a fun challenge write down every type of Great Blue Heron prey that comes to mind. Union Bay Watch has an unofficial list of list of GBH prey — in pictures — where you’ll hopefully find one or two surprises. Click here to be surprised.
