"Morning Journey"

Great Blue Herons   -   Giclee on Fine Art Paper  -  Edition Sizes 100

by Guy Crittenden

Taking wing from the edge of a tidal creek, this elegant pair of great blue herons is heading out on a morning journey.  These popular and plentiful shore birds can be found in all the tributaries of the Chesapeake Bay.  They are expert fishermen, and can be seen stalking prey from fish to frogs along the shores.  The islands of the James River just below the falls in downtown Richmond are a major rookery for hundreds of breeding pairs of great blue herons.  The best time to visit is early March, in the height of courtship.
