I made a post a few days ago in reference to a Heron With Fishing Lure Stuck in Foot. This Great Blue Heron seems to be getting plenty to eat. I did notice that it would not put much weight on the leg with the lure. This caused the Heron to have problems with balance.

I was also informed that someone did report this to a refuge employee.

This Great Blue Heron hangs around the bridge near the entrance to the Auto Tour Road, which is at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma.

I sat on a folding three-legged stool that I keep in my pickup. I had my bean bag on a rail supporting my camera and lens.
