The Grey Heron
The Grey Heron, taken 3 months ago
This bird will eat frogs, toads. rats, mice, voles, and fish. With the ability to stand still for long periods of time he is a very successful predator. He sometimes cups his wings as a sunshade and lures the unsuspecting fish to his downward, deadly gaze on a hot summers day. His accuracy in the strike is phenomenal and I personally know two individuals who have been blinded in an eye during a ill advised foray to a heron's nest.
