Stealth, secrecy and patience – that’s the hunting mode of a green heron, one of the many avian residents of Little Swamp Sanctuary in Shepherd, Michigan.
Once called the green-backed heron, this bird has an iridescent green back that can appear blue in sunlight and black in shade. They also have long brown and white stripes on their bellies and under their necks, which easily blend into the vegetation. Green herons are able to camouflage themselves by standing still and mingling with branches, tall grass and sedges. However, they constantly wag their tails when they think people spot them.
