Fountain Creek Regional Park Best Of

It's true: Bigger is better. At least it is when you're talking birds. Members of one of the largest bird species in the United States hang out at Fountain Creek Regional Park, and in the springtime, choose the giant cottonwoods on the creek banks there to build their nests. The majestic great blue heron stands 4 feet tall and has a 6-foot wingspan. It's a prodigious angler but sometimes doesn't show great judgment herons have been known to choke to death by trying to swallow fish that are too large for their slender necks. ("Junior! I told you that your eyes are bigger than your neck!")
