It has an olive back with blue-grey wings and tail, yellow underparts, a relatively long pointed bill and black legs
The song of this bird is a simple, loud, ringing sweet-sweet-sweet-sweet-sweet. The call is a loud, dry chip, like that of a Hooded Warbler. Its flight call is a loud seeep.
Some say the bird’s name is onomatopoeic, based on the bird’s grunting call note.
Great Blue Heron
The Great Blue Heron (Ardea herodias) is a large wading bird in the heron family Ardeidae, common near the shores of open water and in wetlands.
The call is a harsh croak. The heron is most vocal during the breeding season, but will call occasionally at any time of the year in territorial disputes or if disturbed.
The Barred Owl (Strix varia) is a large typical owl native to North America. Best known as the Hoot Owl for its distinctive call, it goes by many other names, including Eight Hooter, Rain Owl, and others.
The usual call is a series of eight accented hoots ending in oo-aw, with a downward pitch at the end. It is noisy in most seasons. While calls are most common at night, the birds do call during the day as well.
