| I have a blue heron that thinks my pond is a buffet. I cant really tell when he is around. Do they come out at night?. Are their any particular times of day I can expect him to come around such as morning, noon or night?
You should read the article on herons. (Look it up!)
The quick read is that the Heron is a dawn and dusk feeder, he's not particularly tripped up by wires, and he quickly learns what's a real threat and what is just a scarecrow. The best way to run them off is a dachshund, fireworks, a gun (illegal) or the Scarecrow. Herons are not scared of owl eyes, inflatable snakes, but they are scared to death of the new alligator you can float in the pond - unless they notice he stays put for a week. So move him around.
