This great Blue heron hangs out at a boat dock near the condo in Perdido Key. He waits for the people to start fishing and then shows up for his next free meal. This big bird has scamming to a science, patiently waiting for someone catching a fish they don't want. When they catch the fish, he perks up and jumps down to catch the fish thrown to his waiting beak. I am fascinated by this bird and I am sure there will be lots of photos and paintings inspired by this beautiful creature.
