Lammassaaressa aamulla


English text is the bottom of post.

Tänään aamulla Lammassaaren retkellä pajusirkut olivat äänessä.Kaunis, aurinkoinen aamu.





Harmaahaikaroita on hauska katsella. Harmaahaikara seisoo liikkumattomana kaislikossa vedessä odottaen, että kala ui sen vierestä. Ja, kun kala ui sen vierellä, se nappaa kalan nokkaansa.



Tänään aamulla yksi harmaahaikara nappasi melko ison kalan. Sillä oli vaikeuksia niellä se kokonaisena.





Kala oli pitkän tovin haikaran kurkussa ennen kuin se vajosi haikaran vatsaan.





Syötyään ison kalan, haikara seisoi vielä muutaman minuuttia paikoillaan ja sitten se lensi kuivalle maalle seisomaan. Kuvat saa isommiksi klikkaamalla hiirellä jotain kuvaa.



Today morning I was birding in Lammassaari Nature reserve area. It was beautiful, sunny morning. Reed buntings were singing. Grey herons are fun to watch. Grey herons are standing motionless in the water. They are waiting that fish came near. And when fish is near, heron will grabs it. One Grey heron caught a big fish. Heron had difficulties to swallow the fish. The fish was a long time in Herons throat. After eating the big fish, the Heron stood still for a few minutes in place.

  2. Here we have Great Blue Heron and I saw one the other day with an injured leg. You wonder how long it can survive with that condition since it can no long stalk its prey, and with Bald Eagles around may become prey itself. Great series of pictures of its cousin, the Grey Heron.

    1. Hello David. Thank you for your comment. I think that a bird with one leg can’t survive a long time…

      The Great Blue Heron looks very much similar than Grey heron.

  10. Those herons can be fun to watch when they have a large fish. Sometimes I watch them struggle to eat, but they never give up, even if they have to juggle the fish around.

  18. Great timing to be able to capture the Great Heron catching and swallowing the big fish. It will take a long time for the fish to be digested. Happy new week!

  21. Hi Anu, Great photos ... especially love the Heron. I'm in Washington State and over here we call them Great Blue Herons. They look exactly like your Gray Herons. Are they the same? Thank you for sharing your blog and thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving me a comment. Hope to see you again. Best regards from Seattle! John

      Great Blue Heron and Grey Heron are two different species, but they look so similar.
      See you! Anu
