    I was out today to shoot some Coots( type of duck). Ran into a guy who told me of some nesting Great Blue Herons. This spot is very secluded and swampy. After a 30 min trek into the woods I found some 30 pairs of these birds nesting about 60 ft up. These birds stand over 4 ft tall and have a 6ft wing span. This is one of over 50 I took.

    Any feedback would be welcome, as I was soaked from the thighs down.

    Thats exactly where they are, takes about half an hour to get near the nests, as it is all swamp.
