National Wildlife Day

According the the same-named organization, “National Wildlife Day is celebrated today to help bring awareness of the plight of wild animals around the globe. NWD encourages wildlife lovers to stand up and fight for animals that need a voice, to visit their local zoo and donate what they can to make a difference in the lives of our beloved animal friends“. Thus, from my photos at Green Cay, here is a Great Blue Heron (Ardea herodias) caught in the act of collecting materials for his nest. These beautiful creatures are rather large nesting birds common in North, Central and South America. In Florida, we are blessed to have lots of wetlands which attract these guys. They are even found in Bellaggio and I regularly see them along the shoreline of my backyard lake.
