Blue Heron in Dearborn Park Decaturga

This Great Blue Heron was spotted in Dearborn Park on October 15. It has been sighted by Friends of Dearborn Park. Even though there was a huge sewage spill just days before this bird knows where and where not to go. This green space is a sanctuary for all types of wildlife and Friends of Dearborn Park hopes to encourage DeKalb County and the City of Decatur to assist in keeping this as passive green space as there is so little left in this area.


The great blue heron (Ardea herodias) is a large wading bird in the heron family Ardeidae, common near the shores of open water and in wetlands over most of North Americaand Central America, as well as the Caribbean and the Galápagos Islands. It is a rare vagrant to in coastal Spain, the Azores, and areas of far southern Europe. An all-white population found only in the Caribbean and Florida was once treated as a separate species and known as the great white heron.Read remaining article on Wikipedia
