GBH - Great Blue Heron (Ardea herodias)

Tangled up in blue! Great song and a great color! Great Blue Heron flying over the Great Blue Ocean! No educational post today, ok a real quick one, these birds' max weight is only about 5lbs. A single Great Blue Heron female named Harper was tracked during migration and flew 68 hours from Nova Scotia to Georgia and covered 3,265km (about 2,000 miles in 1 flight). It is absolutely amazing and you can read more if interested and can track them on a Facebook page, check it out here: #gbh #greatblueheron #greatblueherons #tangledupinblue #greatblueheronsofinstagram #heron #Ardeaherodias #birds #birdnerd #birdphotography #birdlovers
