Default Heron Mugged By the Kids

This Great Blue Heron came home to the nest just to get mugged by the chicks. Do your kids jump you like this?

Great shots, wow the little guys grow quickly, it wasn't that long ago that I saw GBH's building nests and mating in Fort Myers

Hi Ed,

Great series!!!

It's funny how the parent fluffs out it's head and neck feathers in the nest. Must be to make the young'uns feel that they actually look normal. . .

The only time I've seen them fluffed out like this is right after they've lunged for a fish, and are trying to dry off.

Very cool captures. You're lucky to have some access to a vantage point to get the opportunity to shoot these. I'd need a fire engine and crane or about 3000mm and be able to climb trees really well to get anything close to these. Unfortunately, my tree climbing days have been over for about 45 years. . .

Good show. The first 2 are breathtaking. The 2nd one though distracting has all 3 pairs of eyes towards you. Very timely shot indeed
