As I have mentioned in previous posts, we have been following the growth of the Great Blue Herons that are nesting on the Concho River in downtown San Angelo. We drove by there Sunday morning and I shot this series of one of them testing his wings. Enjoy and click on any image to see an enlargement.
When we left a little later, they were still there, but I imagine that they will probably be gone the next time we go check on them again.
In the meantime, I have discovered a nest of Yellow-crowned Night Herons in another residential neighborhood. More on that later, as I try to get photos of those chicks in coming days.
