After checking that the danger had passed from the intruding Great Egret the Great Blue Heron chick fluffed his feathers back down to regular size.

Then he took the opportunity to wingercize, flapping his wings in preparation for learning to fly.

He didn’t lift off this time, but did do some single wing stretches to complete his work out.

  1. Ellen I love your photos of this chick, how it could make itself “big” and defend itself against the egret. Would you allow me to use some of your photos in a post. I’d like to do something to encourage people who feel “small”.

  2. I’ve prepared the post using four images from your three posts, and linking back to each post as well as to your blog-home. Totally depends on your ok though so I’ll wait for it and keep my fingers crossed!
