MEET BILL

Whether stalking prey or defending territory, Bill’s bill can be a formidable weapon. Great Blue Herons spear their prey with a quick thrust of their long beaks. They can even scare off a gator. If you find an injured Great Blue, it is not recommended to rescue this bird by yourself. Call your local wildlife rescue center.
