The Heron and the Egret
These birds are for the lack of a better term “Eating Machines” If it moves they will eat it, crawdads, any and all varieties of fish, small birds you name it, if it passes within striking distance they will nail it and from what I have observed they are territorial about their favorite hunting spot. It seems like this Great Egret and Great Blue Heron go at it on a daily basis. The Heron usually wins the who gets to stay war but the Egret makes the best of his opportunities when infringing on the Herons spot. The Heron struts, postures and will eventually chase the egret away.But before the Heron get it’s way the Egret usually makes the most of its spot stealing intrusion.After the Egret works the spot over and the Heron has finally had enough and chased it away, it resumes in it’s never ending quest for something to eat.All in all I think the Heron may have won the battle of the spot but the Egret definitely took home the bacon, and while these two Titans battled it out this little guy didn’t do too bad either.
