Herons spend much of their time wading along the shoreline, feasting on fish. This particular heron was spotted in an orchard in the Brewster area over a mile away from the nearest river. According to Liz and Ken Hemberry, this is the first time they have ever seen a heron in the orchard and they were lucky enough to have a camera on hand to capture the shot.
