I saw this animal in the little pond near the Hodge Memorial on Saturday's hike to Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge. I know you can figure this one out.
Are you all set to start this game?
Three words in all make up my name
My name comes from my feathers hue -
And from my height - I think that's true
To never meet me is the wish
Of any self-preserving fish
As fish and frogs my sight should fear
With my sharp bill I can them spear
With my long legs with ease I wade
With wings the water I can shade
So that I can thus spot my prey
And have fish dinner this fine day
My color is a blueish-grey
I'm four feet tall I think I'd say
How with guessing are you fairin'?
For I am a great blue heron
