I call great blue heron's pigs because they often try to swallow things way too big to swallow.

Good BIF. Herons are generally "Grey" in the UK and I have never been sure if in fact they are two separate sub species or whether the difference is just in the name?

Very closely related John. Typically, the Yank version has to be bigger🤣and there's a bit of a colour difference about the flanks.

Thank you! yeah, I noticed that, too.

I have the same problem but I can't fly 😆😆
lol! Dodo birds can't fly, not an issue, lol!

It looks like a Heron to me.....
Yes Jeff, I said it was one, a great blue heron.

Thanks, John. From what I've read the differences are slight. Here's a read about the differences, I read a different one in the past.

Wonderful shot, Kirk.
Thanks Rob, I appreciate it.
