Is there even such thing as a Grey Heron?
How do you mean? There is a species, Ardea cinerea, found in Eurasia that is very similar to the Great Blue Heron that is called the Gray (or Grey) Heron. The ABA area has a handful of records of this species. It makes me wonder how many are overlooked here because folks see them as Great Blues.

Yes, I thought it was a great blue... and didnt even know that Grey Herons Exisist.
The Gray and Great Blue Herons are sister species. There are other cool species in the genus Ardea that are like Great Blues in costumes. Take a look: http://en.wikipedia....i/Ardea_(genus)
