Heron Scat

By tonyguitar
Not for the squeamish. I have been around blue herons for years and never saw this before. Interesting as I thought they were very discreet about personal matters. This one may not be well...stomach trouble? You could win a bet at your local pub. Do they ever while aloft? or...are the legs spread or not while breaking FAA regulations. This image is all the proof you need to collect. Pity the ducks and birds below in Lazo swamp, Comox, B.C.

Thanks for c & cs on timing. I realize this is not pretty, yet it is interesting to naturalists and birders. Someone in the know may offer more insight to Heron behavior. TG

Well I know seagulls do it while flying. At times when a bunch fly over our solarium, I hear plop, plop, plop. Great timed capture Tony......Sandy

Brilliant, words fail me, or should that read "words foul me?'
