Sharing The Trail, Heron

I have not seen any Great Blues in this area for a while now. In the past smaller Herons and Egrets nested here.

This bird was wandering around on a trail by a wooden bridge. The only reason we noticed him was the noise. Croaking and chasing off another Heron.

Competition and territory disputes must be starting in the rookery nearby. They are moving further away for food and nesting materials.

After the shot above he suddenly flew into a thicket, and never came out. I waited but he must have tucked himself in.
