This is a bit off subject and a tad late, but I was curious if anyone has witnessed a fight between two Great Blue Herons? I was photographing shorebirds just below the dam in Panton last Friday when I saw and recorded a fight between what I think was an adult and an immature. While I’m not certain of the age, one bird had plumes and the other was without-which informed my thoughts on the combatants.
As if that wasn’t exciting enough, after the fight I was surprised by an American Mink, who was fishing just meters from my position. I’ve included a link below to my Flickr site for anyone interested in seeing the sequence:
