Feathers On Friday: The Many Faces Of Mr GBH

As many of you know, Mr GBH our resident Great Blue Heron is my favourite neighbour, but ‘sshush’, please don’t tell my other wild friends here in Florida. I wouldn’t want them to know that they’re not number one on my list.  I thought that today it might be fun to show his many faces.

Mr GBH the hunter, haunting the water’s edge searching for his next fishy victim.


He knows that patience pays off and is usually very successful in his endeavours.


Mr GBH the good husband and home-maker. He takes pride in creating a safe and comfortable nest for his wife and family


Mr GBH the comedian. He obviously has a sense of humour as displayed here by the twinkle in his eye and his “Wow, look at me now!” stance. Maybe he was just sunning himself, but I like to think that maybe he’s bragging just a little.


Mr GBH the deep thinker. He’s able to stand for seemingly and age, doing absolutely nothing. He knows that meditation is good for the soul.


Mr GBH the Supermodel. He can also be a bit of a dandy as he shows off his gorgeous blue-gray plumage. He has that pose worked out to perfection.


Wishing you all a happy Friday and a great weekend.


Feathers on Friday: Mr. GBH hard at work

Charlotte of ‘Prairie Birder’ blog has a ‘Feathers on Friday’ Challenge. I’m listening to sounds of hubby hard at work making our ‘nest’ more comfortable, and was reminded of this photo taken at our local nature reserve. Here’s Mr. GBH bringing in more ‘timber’ to weave into the nest, much like when hubby goes off to Home Depot and comes back with the Jeep loaded up with ceiling beams. I’m wondering just how many more loads it’s going to take.


Wishing you all a happy Friday and a splendid weekend.
