2021—It’s Frog Legs for Dinner

Great Blue Herons were vigilant hunters in Skagit Valley. Several GBH’s had staked out territory and tried to hold their own against onslaughts from Northern Harriers and Bald Eagles. One Great Blue resisted as long as it could before relinquishing its small prey to a couple of bullying Bald Eagles. This is possibly the same Heron who skirmished with the Bald Eagles earlier and as it later searched the marshy grasses near where we stood watching for Short-eared Owls, its successful strike resulted in a small frog for dinner.
