Great Blue Heron 05

Description : There is good evidence that the timing of the breeding season of the Great Blue Herons is also related to the abundance of food at nearby feeding areas. In the spring, the duration of low day time tides increases and the warming rays of the sun triggers the growth of eelgrass on shallow beaches. The eelgrass habitat attracts small fish to feed and reproduce and they in turn attract the herons. The plentiful food is used for egg production and the laying of eggs by herons is closely timed with this seasonal ebb and flow of tides.
