My last post shared Great Egrets in habitat scenes.Β  This post shares Great Blue Herons also in habitat scenes at the same location, Chesapeake Farms.

I told the Great Egrets they had their own post, but this one just had to photo-bomb a Great Blue Heron’s profile shot I was working on. 😏

    • Thank you, Hien, it is very well maintained for the conservation they’ve set up for protection. It just closed for the winter, darn it. You can bet I’ll be ready in April for the reopening!

  1. It’s always wonderful seeing these birds in their natural habitat. Thanks for sharing the birds and their surroundings!

  2. They are a very tall Heron Donna, and their wingspan is near that of an eagle, they look quite impressive, and I guess are a concern to the Great Egret, as they are both Great birds, in stature and beauty. πŸ™‚

    • Thank you, Ashley, the GBHs have such beautiful coloring and are indeed majestic. They always seem to be more docile around egrets; and yes, the egrets are always worried the GBHs are getting all the fish! πŸ˜‰

  3. Ha, greedy egrets! πŸ˜‰ GBHs are the only big wading birds we get here. We have a white birch that leans over near our small river and it is a favorite perch… though I rarely see them there, they leave their messes on the foliage below!

    • I think the egret was watching me setting up my shot! hehe Lovely sounding perch for GBH photo ops. And I love the clue too of lower foliage or ground messes, my eyes also shoot straight up to find the perch that is somebody’s favorite. And hopefully that somebody!

  4. Some folks just always want the spotlight! Seems we have a pair of Egrets flying by the house down by the creek of late -at least while the water in the creek is still relatively low. Did I tell you we WATCHED a pair of herons land on the tip of what we call the heron tree. It was late at night, getting dark already. We were looking at the crescent moon and we saw them land, do some preening and it looked like they may have been about to roost there… as seen from our kitchen window. We were beyond thrilled!
