On the 5th of November 2013, I was at Turee Pond in Bow searching the far end thru my scope when a Great Blue Heron flew to the edge of the pond right near me, and then flew over to the boat ramp where I was set up, and hung out with me for 40 minutes. I just stood there, slowly walked around for different angles, and crept in ever so slowly till I was only 10 feet from the bird. I had a nice conversation with it... and no, it did not talk back. It just walked around, looking at me, then at its reflection in the water. It finally flew off to another area affording me some flying shots of this graceful bird.
