Drama in the Pond

Great Blue Herons is the largest bird you can see in the parks around Montreal. Dominating the pond with its size, this bird is an excellent hunter, patiently waiting or moving slowly along the border to spot careless frogs or fishes.

Here a short clip showing you how a the heron catches and swallows a fish, recorded in Rapids Park Lachine, April 2018.
