Black & White Friday – Grey Herons

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 ….

  1. The oldest recorded bird lived for 23 years, but the average life expectancy in the wild is about 5 years. Only about a third of juveniles survive into their second year, many falling victim to predation
