Harbor Great Blue Heron
updated: Sep 18, 2011, 1:10 PM

By Edhat Subscriber

This Great Blue Heron was seen just below the breakwater in Saturday night's dusk. It was full of vim and vinegar, and chased off a rival Night Heron in its quest for fishing territory.

Taken just before it became too dark

Imitating Nessie

This Night Heron was seen being chased off by a Great Blue Heron in the Santa Barbara Harbor a week ago. [pic] (09/26/11)

What a gorgeous, elegant bird the great blue heron is - too bad it was so dark and the pictures are a bit grainy. Still, it does lend a Loch Ness monster-like mood to the photos!

Interesting; thanks for the photos. Didn't even realize there were such things as "night" herons. I guess that's the other heron whose wing you can see in one of the pix.

Love those Herons! I, too, never heard of Night Herons. Could you tell us more?
