Heron or Crane?

image 2

Is the menacing bird you see outside your window a great blue heron or a sandhill crane?

With length, wingspan, and general body shape being similar, it may be hard for you to decipher between the two species.

A great way to tell what kind of bird is lurking in your backyard is to see them in flight. Herons tuck their necks in and "S: curve while flying, do not have a red crown like the cranes, and also lack the long, fluffy third row of flight feathers on their wings.

Also, may people believe, like herons, sandhill cranes feed on fish. This in incorrect ... while they will occasionally eat fish, they are omnivores who have a balanced diet of plants and animals.
