This happened today! Yesterday morning I woke up thinking about Great Blue Herons and wrote a bit about them and posted lots of photos i had been collecting over the past few months. Today on my morning walk there was an overhead quarking commotion and five were on the wing. I wasn’t expecting to see that at all and only caught the tail end, but I had never seen so many flying together. The birds were majestic and it was truly spectacular. I tried to figure out where they had come from and if they landed, but no luck. I wonder if they were migrating, trying to get ahead of the pending nor’easter.
