South Florida Great Blue Herons Nesting

Download Pic

This nest is located on John Ringling Boulevard just east of  Saint Armands Circle.  The great blue herons are nesting on the north side of the road. These two birds were squabbling over a fish one of them had caught when I discovered them. I was out enjoying a bike ride, with the intention of taking pictures, when I  heard a major ruckus in the trees.  I couldn’t get the camera set up quick enough to video them fighting over the food. I did manage to get some good video footage of them eating the fish though.
