Great Blue Heron @ Great Falls National Park, Maryland

A Great Blue Heron at Great Falls National Park in Maryland. This was my first trip and it was great. The Falls are impressive but there was also a lot of bird activity.

 

On a little island up river from here there is a Heron Rookery, and one of the rangers said there are 100's of Heron. I sure saw a lot of em. Mid day at the main overlook there must have been 10 or more Heron actively fishing. I was at this spot twice, probably for a total of an hour and a half, and saw 2 or 3 Heron get a fish.
