Great Blue Heron (Ardea herodias), juvenile
Astoria, Oregon ~ January 28, 2008

It was only 31 degrees out, and the young blue heron was trying to warm itself in the morning sun on the radio tower outside my window. It was not pleased to see me watching back, but also unwilling to fly away and give up its perch in the sun. At least for awhile. It's the closest I've ever been to a heron that didn't immediately fly away.
