This heron was present Sunday morning and Monday morning (5/13-5/14). Both mornings, it was gone by 7:10 a.m. On Monday, was able to get a few crude
photos – but enough to seemingly prove it is a “White Morph” of the Great Blue Heron, thanks to its yellowish legs. Not certain, but believe it may be the first time in Rockingham County. A Great Blue Heron took off in one of the shots, giving us a nice confirmation of the White’s size. Believe it has likely left the area, but it was definitely a nervous bird, and there have
been various early morning interruptions and loud noises. Who knows!
