Bird Photography Weekly- Ivory-Billed Woodpecker

Howdee All,

April Fools..

But i do have this Lovely Green Heron.

I love this bird!

The Green Herons seems to blend so well with its surroundings.

Love the yellow around the eyes.

I photographed this birdie at Green Kay in Florida.

  9. Ha! I thought you'd at least give us a Photoshopped Pileated Woodpecker or something...but that Green Heron is pretty cool. That's definitely the fiercest one I've ever seen!
