Great Blue Heron

We have been host to a Great Blue Heron for over a month now.  First it polished off all of my goldfish and now it's been working on my frogs.  It's a young bird, so I've been a bit concerned that it is spending too much time in my now empty pond.  Yesterday I went out and purchased 3 dozen feeder goldfish and put them in the pond for the heron, thinking like a Wildlife Rehabilitator that getting this bird stronger, it would migrate a little further south soon.  They need to stay for the winter in an area where there is no ice coverage on the water ways...or so I thought!  I just watched the GBH impale and swallow whole an adult Chipmunk! It was amazing although a bit upsetting to witness nature in action.  I think that the bird is going to be fine!

Here's the animal's message:Seems way too spot on! 

Important Great Blue Heron Teaching: Self Confidence
“The Great Blue Heron is a lone hunter. He is the largest of the Heron and is magnificent in flight. He may often appear to have no structure or organization to his habit, but this is far from the truth. It is a matter of perception. Heron teaches us to stand on our own so that we are not dependent upon others.” Copyright: Unknown.
Great Blue Heron’s Teachings Include:
“Heron medicine is the power of knowing the self by discovering its gifts and forcing its challenges. It is the ability to accept all feeling and opinions without denying any emotion or thought.” Copyright: “Medicine Cards”, Jamie Sams and David Carson.
Great Blue Heron’s Wisdom Includes:
Aggressive Self-determination
Thorough Involvement
Being Methodical
Living in Solitude

If Heron has come wading across your path;

It is time to look deeper into aspects of your life that will bring out innate wisdom and show you how to become self-reliant. Are you grounding yourself regularly? Heron teaches that grounding yourself in the earth and your spiritual beliefs will help you discover emotional insights more clearly and more quickly.
Alternatively he could be teaching you how how to become comfortable in uncertain situations and to be watchful of opportunities to arise so that you can quickly grasp them and move on.
