Blue Herons in Forest Park – A Siege and a Flyby

Groupings of birds always seem to have interesting names, and the name given to a group of herons is no less so with a group of herons being called “a siege of herons.” This past Valentine’s day, which was very cold, I saw the remarkable sight of four blue herons huddled together on the bank of a canal and then one did a magnificent flyby right by me!
