@BurlCoNJ Wildlife Photography pic of today #windphotography

Great Blue Heron - wingspan: 5.5 to 6.6 feet
Amico Island Wildlife

Captured this photo of a beautiful, large bird on our fall nature walk this morning at Amico Island in Burlington County NJ. It looks like a Great Blue Heron - .Ardea herodias. We also saw some white herons, ducks, spiders, a snake and smaller migrating birds. 

Although I have lived nearby for all these years, this was the first time we ever went to Amico Island. We went with a group lead by Jennifer Bulava, the head Burlington County Parks System park naturalist. We will surely be back with our cameras! 

Thanks for the guided tour, Jenn!
