great blue herons settling in

Our place is a scant three blocks from the largest urban heron nesting site in North America. Every spring, a few trees just inside Stanley Park are basically taken over by herons nesting. Cars are not allowed to park under them (or even drive there, if I remember correctly). It's nice to watch them, especially in this golden sunset light. These two were having a bit of a fight as we looked on.
