Great Waterbirds of Iowa

With their long elegant necks, spindly legs and otherworldly calls, an encounter with one of Iowa's herons can take your breath away.  Host Charity Nebbe talks with Wildlife Biologist Jim Pease about his summer spent paddling many of Iowa's waterways.  On those trips he has gotten up close with Great Blue Herons, Green Herons and Egrets, some of Iowa's most impressive waterbirds.  We learn about their mating, nesting and feeding habits.
