The Great Blue Heron
This hole is appropriately named for the likelihood of players spotting a great blue heron as they reach their outing’s halfway mark. This graceful avian stands tall in the water as it utilizes its sharp beak to snag fish, snakes, frogs and other small animals for sustenance.
Although the heron is common in Ohio now, in the late 1800s, they were threatened by hunters for the millinery trade. While they are thriving now, you can still contribute to the protection of herons and other water birds by maintaining ponds and wetlands.
