I don’t often think of spying a great blue heron in the middle of a city, but when the city is covered with crisscrossing canals as Amsterdam is then it’s more understandable. This big boy was perched in a full but small green leafed tree near one of those beautiful canals. Maybe he had just had his meal and was digesting. Whatever his story, it was quite a sight. I’ve seen my share of herons, but never before sitting in a tree.
