There's something about Blue Herons. They're just so cool. They make me think of pterodactyls.
What sound does a blue heron make, I wonder? In reality I think blue herons are pretty quiet, but in my imagination, they have high-pitched, screeching voices that would echo across our cornfield and bounce back from the treeline. I love to watch their stealthy steps as they stalk minnows and listen for the telltale swish of an unwary fin.
