So What Was THAT All About?!
Yesterday afternoon I saw this great egret standing around in the salt marsh minding it’s own business when suddenly a great blue heron came swooping in and made a giant fuss.
Normally when the blue herons do this, the idea is to chase off the other bird because it is seen as a competitor for food. But in this case the egret didn’t leave and the heron didn’t seem to care one way or another.
I believe that it may simply be the great blue heron’s nature to create a huge scene when so much drama is not even required. Maybe they just get bored and enjoy making life a bit more interesting!
