Great Blue Heron Scuffle at Greenfield Park in Milwaukee County Wisconsin on September 2, 2018

While birding Greenfield Park in Milwaukee County this morning the highlight was a scuffle with two Great Blue Herons. The two Great Blue Herons came around a corner of an island at the pond and after they landed, the scuffle began and they gave great views of the interaction between them. Must be a territorial thing. It was a slightly overcast morning with a nice breeze, temps were perfect! It was a great time with great friends, birders and photographers too. Images were a taken on September 2, 2018.

    That is awesome, wow! Today I was on the Old Marsh Road at Horicon. I heard a loud “growl” and thought is that some sort of wild cat? No – for the next 10 minutes I got to watch a northern harrier harassing young great blue herons and lack crowned night herons. Quite a sight (and sound)!
