Pillar of the Community

I caught this large heron hunting for breakfast under the Old Falls of Neuse Rd bridge near Falls Dam in Raleigh. The Neuse River Greenway Trail begins about 50 feet from here and actually winds under the bridge. This is upstream of the canoe and kayak launch, so it is not a place you would generally see if you paddled the river. The only exception is that it is a popular place to play in whitewater kayaks when the dam is open.
