Great Blue Heron
Ardea herodias
This beautiful Great Blue Heron was resting along a cove of Lake Loudon in Knoxville, TN. These birds are sometimes mistakenly called "cranes". Herons eat fish, frogs, crayfish, and small eels. Cranes are not the same birds as Blue Herons! I recently saw a road in a swanky new neighborhood in west Knox county called Blue Crane Rd.! Aaugh! :0
