Pacific Herring Spawning and Great Blue Heron Takes Advantage of It!
- These Pacific herring females were laying their eggs on mussels in Auke Bay, Juneau Alaska.
- Of interest is there did not seem to be any males taking part.
- This Great Blue Heron spotted the activity from about 200 feet away and flew nearby.
- It started eating the herring which appeared to be fairly easy to catch.
- Great Blue Herons are fascinating birds. To learn more about them look at Things that go Squawk in the Night (Great Blue Herons) by Bob Armstrong and Marge Hermans
