Greenie fishing at Arrowhead Lakes area today. It was chased all over by other bigger herons, but did manage to get some fishing in.

Black-crowned Night-Heron is not happy about the Great Blue Heron coming into its fishing spot in Arrowhead Lakes area.
Years ago, at Tres Rios Wetlands, several large old trees held many nests of the Great Blue Herons. It was great action, wonderful photography, and something we looked forward every year when babies came. Then it all stopped.

This Green Heron obviously wasn’t happy with all the various herons around taking the best places for fishing, on a waterfall in Arrowhead area.
Black-crowned Night-Herons, having a discussion at Arrowhead Lakes today. I think one said to the other, “Listen you, this is my fishing spot so move on.”
They’d do some scuffling and “arguing,” and then get back together. Now there were plenty of fish, and many other places to stand on the waterfall, but they preferred to try to be in the same spot.
