Early yesterday morning we drove by Boat Meadow Marsh and my favorite bird, the Great Blue Heron, was standing among the reeds in the marsh. Perfect photo op. So when I got home I got my camera and walked back.
Blue (as I call him) was still there. Great! But only for a minute and then he flew away. Oh no! I missed him.
A couple of minutes later I saw 2 large birds flying in the sky. I thought they were courting. They seemed to be in sync.
It wasn’t until I went back and looked at my photographs closely that I realized that an Osprey was chasing the Great Blue Heron.
