Photo of the Week: Big Bird and Toadfish

Photo of the Week: Heron and Toadfish

Image of a heron in flight with toadfish in beak.

—Jon Smith

I took this photo of "Big Bird," as my mother would call the great blue herons that always visit her waterfront on the Poquoson River.  This one speared an oyster toadfish.

Ensure that Jon and future generations continue to enjoy extraordinary sights and places like these along the Chesapeake. Support the Chesapeake Clean Water Blueprint—the plan to Save the Bay and its waters!
