The heron’s return

Hi to all, for the last few days, we have been seeing a few bird species back from the south.  For some, it’s a bit too early but for others, they are right on time.  Yesterday, I saw a few dozens of  American Robin, mallard ducks and an  osprey gliding over a field.  I also have seen a few blue heron.  I took this picture two years ago on an old abandoned beaver pond.  We have a few small colonies on our land and they go along with photography.  They are spectacular birds in their courtship display.  If you have the chance to lie in ambush near a colony in the next two weeks, you will observed some striking behaviors.  Have a good day.
