    Nice capture. I'm afraid my spicy Cajun recipe would send him running for the bathroom.

    Around 20 years ago I was summer steelhead fishing on the Clackamas River and it was near sundown. The area I was at had its own resident great blue heron. These birds tend to have their own fishing spots and will defend them against other great blue heron Intruders or against ospreys, or other birds. After a while they tend to come to know you and I knew this one bird and he knew me pretty well. Well, as I was saying, around dusk I saw a crawfish crawling in the shallows near me,so I caught him with my spinner and threw him to the nearby heron. The bird picked up the Crawfish and tossed himup in the air and grabbed him in his bill and scissored off the front end and swallowed the tail, all in one motion which took perhaps one second total. I will never forget that. I had no idea!

    Isn't it amazing how we can catch glimpses of nature at work sometimes. And in just a short moment we have retained an awesome memory. Thanks for sharing Derrel!

    Many thanks guys! Much appreciated.

    Several weeks ago, I watched a heron in the field behind where I work stalk, catch and gulp down a large field rat. He then yacked it back up only to swallow it again.

    I was very surprised since I thought at the time they ate only aquatic animals. A quick web search turned up the fact that they are opportunistic foragers and will eat lots of different things.
