This Blue Heron was on the roof of the dining room here at James Place Inn a few days ago. Perhaps it lost its way in the fog, or just smelled breakfast! Either way, it was quite a sight to behold at 6:45am. It did not seem to mind being stared at. When it did take flight, it had a remarkable wing span of 8-10 feet. For those still sleeping, we shared the photo in the dining room at breakfast.
Freeport does have great opportunities for bird watching at various times throughout the year. Come check it out, particularly in the spring when the birds are on their migration path.
