Pondside Slinker

The little Green Herons, practically a quarter the size of the Great Blues, are more challenging to capture. They slink around the edges of the ponds, hidden beneath the overhang, so that even an avid birder can walk by and be none the wiser unless you know where to look. They retreat into grassy cover when you approach, or, if you approach too enthusiastically, simply flush. But it's possible to sort of win ones trust if you stalk it patiently enough--especially if it's busy stalking its own game.
