Great Blue Heron
Great Blue Heron fishing the small opening in the ice with 7 other herons at
Farmington Bay.   On the way back down the road I noticed there
were now 12 herons competing for fish. Carol Davis, 1-28-07


Caught a fish
This heron caught two in the hour I was watching and while everyone wanted the spot,
no one dared make a serious attempt at taking over. Anyone who got too close
was driven off after some heron swearin' and posturing.   © Carol Davis, 1-28-07
