Bird Tracks: Great Blue Heron

I don't come across Great Blue Heron tracks very often, so I'll admit I was a stumped when I found these along the edge of a lightly snow-covered, iced-over pond in early January. The tracks were so large (more than 7” long) and initially seemed out-of-place. Had the pond been open water, I wouldn't have been surprised to see a Great Blue Heron stalking along the edge of this pond, but then, any tracks would likely have been underwater and would have gone unnoticed.
