All Things Green Heron

I spent about an hour with the Green Heron chicks this morning.  The parents were not in the
vicinity, and they were spending time learning on their own.  They are successful at feeding themselves, as well as watching for predators, and that is the better part of a heron's day.

As you can see, they did several amusing things, and they are learning how to play and interact
in a positive way, all without help.  They should have no trouble serving, but they will require some serious flight time.
