Gray Heron

Ardea cinerea

There is a single late summer (August) and late fall (October) record of this species (both from St. Paul Island). Most other North American records of this species are from the late fall when this hardy species migrates, while the early summer fits with a pattern of post-breeding dispersal. These are likely to be the most probable periods for further records.
