This is one of the young Herons, strolling down a trail. The nest is still in sight so if things go bad it’s a quick trip home.
The difference in the 2 birds we followed and a few others on the far side is striking. The ‘tale’ chicks walk around and fly close to the trails and people. The others not so much.
Our 2 have seen people watching them since birth. They are more concerned with the Egrets than me.
