Balancing Act

Landing is a “must do” after they have learned to fly and sometimes the young in the rookery make precarious choices.


Even the adults sometimes land on less secure perches. The stance of this Little Blue Heron reminded me of a gymnast about to perform a routine on the uneven bars.


The juvenile Little Blue Heron in the header photo landed in a tree over my head amidst much squawking and just hung on.
