blue heron spotted in backyard in north pekin neighborhood

backyard blue heron in north pekin

We live pretty close to the Illinois river. Close enough to see the water from our drive way. We always see a lot of birds in the sky, especially migratory birds. I stepped out our backdoor this morning and spotted a very large blue heron in my neighbor's backyard. It sat there for about 5 minutes and let me get a couple shots of him.
