Green Heron

Mendon Road Bridge
Cache County, Utah

(Emails from Craig Fosdick,  25 May 2009)

I found a GREEN HERON this morning at the Mendon Rd bridge over the Logan River, in Cache Co. I was able to digiscope a few shots and will be sending a couple to the Utah Birds website (sorry, I don't have a photo-hosting page of my own). The bird did not linger; after <10 minutes it took off and headed north, downstream, and out of sight.

To get to the Mendon Rd bridge from Logan, drive west out of Logan on Utah 30 (200 N). Make a left on 1000 W and stay on 1000W until you reach the first traffic light. At the light, make a right and head west on 600 S for about a mile. Just after you pass 1900 W, 600 S will bend to the left as it
crosses the Logan R. The bird was seen on the south side of the road, perhaps 100-200 ft back from the bridge. It was being mobbed by Red-winged Blackbirds.

Good birding, Craig.
