Weekly Puzzler Answer #67

heron-9630If you guessed a Great Blue Heron, you are correct! This long-legged bird weighs only 5-6 pounds but has a tremendous 6 foot wingspan. Have you ever watched one hunting in shallow waters? They show incredible focus, looking under the surface of the water for a passing creature like a fish, snake, frog, or crayfish. Do you know much about this graceful bird?  Like how many eggs they lay, how fast they fly or where they nest? Do you know what special trick they use to get rid of fish slime? Check back next week as this will be the Creature Feature.
