“Big Deal, I Can Do That”

A great blue heron appears to be showing off by making a dramatic fly by statement as the egret in the background looks on. The egret doesn’t appear to be tremendously impressed however, and likely feels he can do as good a job flying as the blue heron!

But in any case, the egret is probably just as happy that the great blue kept on going and didn’t try to take over hisΒ prime fishing spot in the salt marshΒ as often happens.Β

  1. Wonderful story and excellent photos as always, Phil! Any news, maybe even good progress? Best wishes, Dina
    We all keep our fingers crossed for you!

    • Oh of course, that’s exactly what you would do. Many times when a bald eagle buzzes a group of ducks and makes them all scatter in a panic I truly believe he is often doing it just for laughs because he can.

    • I really appreciate that Jan, thank you.
      Sorry I have not been able to get at your blog recently, I’ve had health issues for several weeks now and have undergone two procedures on my back just this past week. I’m hoping things improve soon. πŸ™‚

  2. It’s so encouraging to see signs of spring in this photo – the GBH is wearing its breeding color beak – both top and bottom bill bright orange! I love to see that, especially when we still have some snow still on the ground here! Thanks for posting this be Phil.

    • I’m so glad you enjoyed this photo, thanks so much!

      • Hi Phil – I have been away from the blog world myself for ten days or so and just found your reply here. I do hope that you are on the mend, feeling better with rach passing day, and that the procedures were not too painful for you. You are needed back at the marsh once the weather settles in to spring for real! Take care, Babsje

  3. Beautiful! And best wishes for Friday and that it brings some relief.

    Mr. GBH is really showing up that egret!
