I've discovered that a Green Heron has taken up residence at one of the local ponds by my place. As with the Great Blue Heron, it's difficult to get close because they are very skittish. Unless I get lucky and one lands close by, I can't get anywhere near them.
I'm thinking that either I have to set up in the pre-dawn and wait for the heron to emerge, or I have to sniper-creep through the tick infested brush in the hopes I can get the drop on him.
Any tips or tactics you all have employed to get close?
