Looking for a Lizard -Good Eats for a Little Blue Heron


Looking for a Lizard - Good Eats for a Little Blue Heron

Living in Florida, we have all kinds of water birds in our backyard at any given time; especially when the pond is full; but they don’t just hang out around the water. They check out the breakfast or dinner specials on our plants too. This Little Blue Heron is looking over my Lantana  bush for lizards: a definite treat for a Heron.

Little Bue Heron

We don't have many lizards around; you can understand why.

Come to Florida and enjoy nature all year round; we'll help you find it.

Well, I learned something new.  I had no idea blue herons ate lizards.  I see them in the salt marshes when we take a walk headed towards the beach.  I assumed they found their goodies there...Happy Sunday.  A

Good afternoon Toni -

Well no sightings of Little Blue Heron in our area but they would certainly love feasting on the countless lizards they thrive so very well in the high desert. You share the coolest pics and information.

Howdy and afternoon Toni

Toni my friend, that sure is a mighty fine photo shoot of that Little Blue Heron. We have a Great Blue Heron that likes hanging out at the Creek which flows along the bottom part of our back property. 

Have a good one

Alexandra - they eat grasshoppers, and other bugs too if the water stuff isn't available.

John - your lizards are probably a little large for my Little Blue.

Dale - thank you; our Great Blues eat larger stuff but wiill also settle for an occasional lizard.

Thanks for sharing your photograph.  If I lived in your area, I would need to learn how to do wildlife photography.

Posted by Roy Kelley (Realty Group Referrals) over 7 years ago

Hi Toni, I always enjoy your bird photos.  They seem willing to come up close and pose for you!

Posted by Dianne Goode, Realtor/Broker (Raleigh Cary Realty) over 7 years ago

Roy - it's a lot like photographing flowers except these guys move around :)

Dianne - thank you. That's what telephoto lenses are good for.

Toni, OH MY that blue heron sure has a beak on him, perfect for picking up a lizard!

Toni, who knew that herons were carnivorous preditors?  Poor little lizards.

Posted by Patricia Kennedy, Home in the Capital (Redfin) over 7 years ago

Joan - They do have very large and very sharp beaks and you don't want to get close to it.

Pat - they eat toads and frogs too.

Posted by Toni Weidman, 20+ Years Selling Homes in New Port Richey, FL (Sailwinds Realty) over 7 years ago

Very nice photo, Toni. The color of the lantana is beautiful. We see a blue heron at a further distance from time to time walking very slowly around a pond. It throws his head forward and back while walking along.

That's how they spot something moving in the water. They don't have binocular vision :), JoAnn.

Hi Toni,

Yummy for the blue huron. I have little black phoebes, lizards and hummingbirds who like to eat the insects in my yard but I don't think I get any big water birds even though I have a pool. Yesterday I saw an egret eating worms in the grass during the rain about 2 miles from my house. I am not sure where it came from?
