This four foot tall Great Blue Heron surprised publisher Lois Allen early Monday morning when it was discovered standing by her pool located in Spencer Township by Maston Lake. “I didn’t open my pool this year so it’s full of frogs,” said Allen. Allen also has a small pond in her back yard. “I haven’t seen any of my gold fish lately either,” said Allen.
Indeed, the Great Blue Heron is actually common to Michigan wetlands. And, surprise, they feed on fish, frogs and other small animals they can get with a quick jab of the beak!
