Great Blue Heron

Length 107-132cm (42-52″). Uncommon winter visitor in the Cayman Islands. Prefers lagoons, ponds, and marine sounds. Also exists in a white colour morph called the “\Great White Heron” (not yet recorded in Cayman). Stands immobile in shallow waters, awaiting fish and frogs, which it dispatches with a rapid jab of its powerful bill. Not to be confused with our more common Tricolored Heron.
