Great Blue Heron

All my birds are individuals, just like any other creature.  With some animals, there behaviors and personalities are too subtle for us to notice or interpret, unless we have taken the time to understand them.  In the 6 yrs that I have lived at my current and last house, I have had three bats get into my house on separate occasions. The last time it happened, I took pictures before releasing it.  I have been warned to be very careful, in case of rabies, which of course i am.

My 84 year old mother had a nest of these in her front yard. The man cutting her yard ran up and started beating on her door. When she answered the door, he frantically began telling her that eagles were chasing him in her front yard.Yellow-crowned Night Heron
