Hi guys. Y’know…Bird TV at our new house is way better than at our old house. We get so many more interesting programs to watch here.

Like this one…

Great Blue Heron

This big guy…though honestly, it could be a girl…is a Great Blue Heron. I’ve never seen one of these before, have you? He’s a big bird…standing a few feet tall. But he sure has some skinny legs! It’s a wonder he can hold himself up on those sticks.

He hung around for a while…

Great Blue Heron

He even managed to find himself a snack in the water. If you look real close you can see he’s eating something. Probably a fish because that’s what they like to eat.

He eventually flew off. But I sure hope this won’t be the last time he visits us.

  4. That is some amazing bird Ernie!

  5. WOW! Those legs look dangerously skinny but then I bet he likes the nice and long and lean so he can clomp around in the water looking for snacks easier! You do get the best bird TV now – just another thing to love about the new house!

    Hugs, Teddy

  7. Cool! Maybe you and the bird could work together to get some yummy fresh fish! LOL

  9. Jumpin’ catfish that bird has long parts and pieces.

    Good thing you are inside

  10. Looks like Bird Tv is looking great from your big screen television. They really do have some skinny legs. Maybe some more different kinds of birds will make their debut to the show in the upcoming weeks. Thanks for the share. Have a wonderful day.

  11. WOW! Your bird TV just busts open the gates!

  12. WOW! That is really cool Bird TV!

  13. Ernie, TBN (The Bird Network) has a new channel for Island Cats!

  14. What a wonderful view you have from your new home. Bet that makes the move worth it. Mom and Dad see those birdies at our river lots of times when they ride the tandem. Still too cold for that yet. Enjoy, Ernie. XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer

  15. What a cool TV program you got! We’ve never seen Great Blue Heron around here. His legs sure look very skinny. Love the photo of him eating a snack 🙂

  21. My kitties would love that too!

  22. your view is spectacular and your new friends will keep you entertained for hours!

  23. Those Blue Herons are just gorgeous. When I live in Charleston, S.C. there were lots of them all over the place. Glad you get to watch them Ernie. You all have a great day. Mom had to go
    to the hospital this morning. Will write about it on the blog tomorrow.

    ***purrsss*** BellaDharma

  26. MOL Thinner than our legs here!

  27. We get herons here and they used to help themselves to fish from our neighbour’s small lake. He put a wire fence around it which stopped them as apparently they won’t fly in to the water to catch the fish, they like to wade in.

  28. Wow, you do get some pawsome TV channels there!

  29. he’s beautiful! I am so envious! We had some of those at a conservation area in Toronto and they were amazing!

  30. You have a great view there, Ernie. You must really love it.

  31. OMC! Ernie, that bird looks to be bigger than YOU!

  32. You look so intense Ernie. That bird kind’s looks funny. Those feathers stickin’ out look a bit like sticks or prickly’s. MOL Enjoy the show. big hugs

    Luv ya’

  33. Whoa! I like to eat fish but I’m not a bird. Can we possibly have something in common? Oh, where did you think the phrase “bird legs” came from to describe a girl with skinny legs?

  34. We certainly don’t have that channel! You’d think that water would freeze those skinny legs!

  35. Wowser! I never get an birds like that on my bird TV! Score!

  36. What great Bird TV!

  37. What an exquisite bird! We think it might be a little cold for a swim though 🙂

  38. Your CatTV gets awesome reception out there

  39. How cool! Our Bird TV looks nothing like your channel. We do get lizard TV, do you have that there?

  40. That’s some awesome Bird TV for sure, Ernie!

  41. Yeah, Ernie. Sometimes we see those birds along the shore of White Lake over here. Usually they stand really still with one leg crooked up, and then suddenly stab down with their beak. They usually have a fish then. Glad your bird TV has that channel.

  42. Awesome bird tee vee! You are living the dream, guys!

  43. Whoa! That’s definitely a tall bird all righty! What a great channel!

  44. You have fantastic bird t.v. channels at your new home! The heron is beautiful.

  45. You have great bird-tv at your new house, Ernie and Zoey. We have herons around too. Sometimes they sit on the roofs to catch a fishie in the pond of a garden. I like to chatter when they fly over our houseEnjoy the skinny legsPawkisses for a wonderful day

  46. Oh , he’ll be back Ernie! He has a friend in you ;p

    Our Mom sends love to yours XO

    the critters in the cottage xo

  47. Wow, up close and real! We see those here but fling rather than wading. Petcretary does see them in the pond or creek edges around here. What I sometimes see in the filed across the street from our den are sandhill cranes…now those *are*big birds!! MOL!

    You sure do live in a beautiful area.

  48. Wow! Now that’s some great bird TV!
