Love these big, beautiful birds!
They enrich our nature 🥰🤗
They’re such beautiful birds!
Thank you, Lynette. I like to see the bird in flight, always impressive ❤️
I’ve been blessed to have seen herons up close. They are truly beautiful animals!
The plumage of the heron is truly impressive and interesting. The white feathers it has on its chest are used to clean its beak. The white feathers grow faster than the rest of the plumage. Brilliant! 😊
They do have wicked-looking beaks, don’t they, but they always seem very shy and skittish, like they think we’re the scary ones. Nice photos!
Thanks, Robert! We have a park in Copenhagen with 16 breeding pairs, and they are relatively tame.
Denmark protected the heron in 1980, and since then the population has tripled. But a biologist warns against coming to the aid of a heron in distress – because of its beak. Instead, you have to call in professionals to help. I will follow that if it becomes relevant 🙂
They do have a dangerous beak, and on top of that a truly bad temper. I was never attacked by a heron, but if looks could kill… 🙂 Cool pictures Hanna!
Haha! I can easily follow your thinking, Peter. The yellow eyes are very intense with the large black pupil!
We have a biologist in Denmark who warns people against helping a heron in distress. I will follow that 🙂
The population has tripled since the bird was protected in 1980.
