That’s Mine, Egret And Heron

One of the prime nesting locations has not been claimed, at least no nest building. Great Blue herons return to last years nests, but here no construction has started.

However, one Heron is coming around and chasing away the competition.

Herons are especially aggressive towards the Egrets.

The Great Egret made the mistake of landing here while a Heron was guarding the tree. Egrets are big, but Great Blues even more so. This was no contest and the Egret was smart enough to leave quickly.
