That's what you call a bunch of herons - a Siege - and did we ever see "bunch" of Great Blue Herons. The shallow waters of Padilla Bay are perfect feeding grounds and we were lucky enough to see amazing sights. We had been looking for the Pelicans - we did find them, but they were so far out in the bay on a tiny island - and that made getting photos of them difficult. But herons - did we ever see the herons.
We were on a small bluff above the bay - they came in quickly.
The one in the top right corner just plunged its head in to catch a fish.
A Bald Eagle flew over - they were quick to take flight. I didn't realize that eagles would frighten such a large bird as a heron.
It was a marvelous experience - next time - more dancing and flying and even a bit of a spat.
These photos are for you Karen - hopefully you will sometime soon get to see many herons.
