These are White Faced Grey Herons, about 3 of them . They are all at Mangere Bridge area and the photo is taken from the Kiwi Esplanade road.
I don’t know why these birds get into a flap when no human has annoyed them, I took this photo from a distance. However, the only explanation is that birds are territorial and they are disputing their personal space. There could be another explanation for all I know.
Whatever was between these 3 birds, it was all over in seconds and everything was fine.
I am not able to go through all the posts as I have been caught up with appointments and organisation and work.
However, we are having a short break and today I am driving a very long way to a destination, but we will be connected to the internet ….
