Great Blue Herons - 4th of September

There was a group of eight or more birds feeding in the same shrinking pond trying to glean the last few remaining fish before it dried up. There were a few squabbles happening, usually when the juvenile birds got in the way of the adults meal. In the second picture from the bottom the bird is eying a Bald Eagle sitting in a tree over my head although I wasn't aware of it at the time. When the birds flew off a couple circled back to avoid being eaten so I guess I was the less threatening intruder at that time. Near Matthew's Lake NS.
