Maybe the most elegant bird in flight.
They make it look effortless.
The Great Blue Herons are beginning to look around the rookeries now. It’s early but every year the older males check out last years nests.
Young Blues and females are still out in the marshes.
This Heron flew directly in front of me down the length of the marsh. It’s good practice for spring when the Herons and Egrets are flying all around…full speed.
