Looks so easy . .

Love watching the herons in flight - they make it look so easy !

This juvenile hatched only a few months back and is already a dominant member of the flock. He has claimed the territory on each end of the bridge (to the right here) and allows no other heron to come close - even the Flock Leader.

If I fumble the food, he will be aggressive toward me, too - remember, these are wild animals and not pets !

Avian Grey is sister site to American Grey | light and features bird photography that seems to form an increasing part of my current portfolio.

My thanks go to Henry the Heron who became very much my passport to the Avian World.
