Bird Pic Of The Week

Great Blue Heron

(Ardea herodias)

Where: Newport News, VA • Museum Drive

Notes: This "Great Blue" is performing a defensive stance in order to stake its territory on this preferred fishing perch at the mouth of the spillway from Lake Maury. Whenever another heron approached, it would fan out its six foot wing span, unfurl its neck feathers and arch back its neck. Sometimes it would have to take off and fly after the intruder, if the unwanted visitor did not heed its warning. These birds put on quite a show. Part of the amazement of these large, four foot tall herons is their behavior. Whether it is their dramatic courtship display, nest building rituals (SEE: WeeklyPhoto_03-29-10), fish capturing or guarding a piece of real estate, these behaviors always make more dynamic photographs. I have sought to tell a story with each image. To me, there is no stronger component than unique behavior to express the beauty and individuality of any species.
