Up with the Chickens


spacer-25Well, not chickens, but Great Blue Herons.   It seems the Great Blues congregate at night and then disperse during the day and stake out their hunting territory. I was out early enough this morning to mingle with them before they went off to work.   As we have a rookery just downstream, it’s hard to be out of sight of a Great Blue or egret in these summer months.   Here are a few photos of the Great Blues as I gently herded them upriver while on my paddleboard.
