“Go Eat Someplace Else!”

This past weekend a great blue heron was relaxing in the salt marsh when he noticed an ibis taking a nice slow stroll over in his direction.

At first the heron didn’t pay much attention to the visitor until the ibis started to feed close…real close. By the time the ibis started picking around the heron’s feet, he’d had enough.

Big blue coiled up his neck and whipped his head around and gave the ibis a shot sending the curve billed intruder scurrying.

Of course after all that, the ibis just continued on his way like nothing had ever happened while the blue heron kept a watchful eye out for any further infractions.
