|These white spots in the grass cover about 4 feet in diameter.|

Now I remember seeing a Great Blue Heron flying from this VERY SPOT a few times over the last few months AND seeing this very same scat pattern then as well. Hmmm...
Then I researched the subject and discovered that Great Blue Heron rookeries (where birds make their nests in large groups) are full of scat covered trees and in fact, the scat eventually coats the tree and the tree dies. AND, here it is--the evidence... there are often whole fish and fish body parts scattered around the ground and hanging in the trees from the Great Blue Herons feeding in these rookeries.
