It appeared that the Great Blue Heron were in abundance at the Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge last weekend. They were not like my local heron that are very skittish when approaching with a vehicle . . . these guys were very cooperative.

  1. They are quite weary of people. I am not sure if they are actually scared of people or just bothered by their presence. They are very attentive fishing birds and just don’t like to be watched.

    I have gotten close several times, and it is always a pleasure. And, I am glad you were able to also and get these wonderful photos.

    You got wonderful GBH shots! I found the Egrets more co-operative than ours too

  5. It’s always fun taking photos of herons and great egrets. I just love these large birds, espeically when they are so cooperative. Great job, Monarch!
