Tale Of Two Herons

I am hesitant to do it now.

The chicks are being raised in a swamp, by 2 adults, and live in a wild, non-protective environment. This means there may or may not be a happy ending here.

For now they are sucking down food, loud enough to be heard all over the swamp, and growing at a fast rate.
