HERON CHICK FUZZ - The first sign of Heron chicks is barely visible as mother Heron adjusts sticks in the nest around her chicks.
PREPARING LUNCH - Birds, including Herons have no teeth. Food is manipulated with the bill, generally swallowed whole and processed inside the body by the digestive system. Herons regurgitate processed food to feed their chicks. This male is hanging off a branch near the nest getting prepared to "serve up" lunch for his mate and chicks in the nest.
