This was a long overdue visit to the preserve. We walked every path we could find and had a fun time.

We even witnessed a bit of thievery.
A heron caught a fish. I missed the actual catch with my camera, but I took a sequence of far-away shots of the heron proudly displaying his “catch” in his beak.
Then the theft took place.

Another heron flew by and in mid flight, grabbed the fish right out of the other heron’s mouth. :o
The victim of the theft stood there for at least 15 seconds, not moving a muscle. Then the victim took off and landed right next to the thief. (The thief still had the fish hanging out of HIS mouth). The victim commenced to open his wings, charge the thief, and verbally scold him (or her).
The thief couldn’t have cared less. He kept the fish in his mouth and just nonchalantly walked away.

I should have done my civic duty ...... I should have called 911. :)
