Sibling Rivalry, Great Blue Herons

This pair of young Herons are the exact opposite of the juveniles we have been following. In fairness I did not visit them as much as I could have, the nest was the exact opposite side of the swamp from where I stop.

These 2 birds fought constantly when in the nest. Now when they meet around the swamp they pickup right where they left off.

These 2 met on the far side of the swamp and they chased each other for a long time. Finally they just gave up, but it was interesting to see just how they react to each other.
