Herons and Friends

birds in marshLike the egrets I showed the other day, these birds inhabit the marshes of Assateague Island. We were on the Virginia part of the island. 


  1. It is a gorgeous place to spot the birds and wildlife.. Wonderful photos. Enjoy your weekend!

  2. Beautiful captures. What strikes me is the length of the legs of the larger birds.

  3. Great place to visit. Loved the birds. That last shot is pretty cool. That Gull looks like it's attacking the Heron.

  4. Nice shots, loved the birds as much as their surroundings.

  5. Herons are gorgeous birds but those of us who keep koi in our ponds are not fond of seeing them in our gardens!
