The herons were really late nesting and hatching this year, but I have some fun ones to share now. Finally. There are three chicks this year, and they’re just starting to stretch their wings. One is older than the other two (not unusual) and in this photo, they’ve just been fed and are fighting. The fun starts when they start flapping. They flap their wings until they finally get them coordinated, then stretch up their legs and flap and flap and FLAP. And then….nothing. Somewhat deflated, they retire to the nest for the next meal and flap session.
