Happy Tuesday: Critter Talks


Anyone who dropped by on Sunday saw this photo.  I hinted that I might use it again.

At first, I thought the heron was alone...
Notice the Heron has company,  his reflection and his shadow

 Toucan:  their beaks are 19 cm = 7.48031 inches

Facts: Herons

The Great Blue Heron is the largest and most widespread heron in North America. It is a large bird, with a slate-gray body, chestnut and black accents, and very long legs and an "S"-shaped neck. Great Blue Herons are very tall and stand 38-54 inches (97-137 cm). In flight, the bird looks enormous, with a six-foot wingspan. Beak ~ 7"

 Facts Monkeys:
In many ways the body of a Monkey is very similar to that of humans. All Monkeys have fingerprints and just like humans they are unique. They have long legs and arms that are flexible so that they can climb with them.


  1. Good info. Never knew most of this.
    Happy Tuesday.

  2. a triple heron ;O) we hope we can at least get one photo of one heron... maybe I place mark for a day next to the lake and pick him up in the evening? covered in leaves and in a bush?

  3. Thanks for all the cool facts about Herons and Toucans!

    Hugs, Teddy

  4. We love Herons. When Granny makes pictures of a field, she doesn't even noticed that they're in it😹Pawkisses for an Easy Tuesday🐾😽💞

  5. The heron is a triplet! Those are very cool facts to know. Thank you!

  6. I have a butterfly tattoo...but over the years I now wish I'd had a G B heron done as a tattoo. Too late now.

  7. We have tons of herons here, right between the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers. Funny story ... the nursing home my Mom lived at has a koi pond. They couldn't figure out why the koi were disappearing until one day a nurse caught a heron using the koi pond as his own personal smorgasbord.

  11. Hahahaha... the monkey, the Toucan and the GBH! Can't ever learn enough about our animal friends!

  12. I learned a lot today. Thank you.

  14. WOW! I learned a lot about Toucans, Monkeys and Herons! We like that!

  15. That was a fun funny and interesting info too!

  16. I had no idea that monkeys have fingerprints!

  17. Very interesting info on the toucan and the monkey. Hope those monkeys aren't part of the crew that got loose in PA:)

  18. One afternoon late in the fall some years ago I was walking around the back field and a pair of herons flew over, quite low. They looked a bit like pterosaurs, close up, with those beaks and long legs. And if you have ever heard them call they sound prehistoric too. They are wonderful birds !

  19. Your heron picture is amazing! We get herons around here in WNY, but only in summer. They do look gigantic when they fly. My Florida associate, Miss Charlee says there are all kinds of herons, egrets, and spoonbills in South Florida, and they're indeed like modern dinosaurs. We've only seen toucans and monkeys at the zoo, but those are some good facts to know!

  20. I love seeing herons in a nest by swamps.They look prehistoric. :) XO

  21. the conversation and thanks for the interesting tidbits!
