Herron und Damen



The herons in Regents Park on the boating lake (and there are a surprising number of them) all appear to be pairing up for their spring ..... springing. I sort-of assume the different plumage on these two represents different gender, but I am happy to be corrected.

Your theory seems plausible to me, though I simply enjoy the birds regardless of their plumage...

Ok the back one is a dummy. Grey herons don't look like this at all. The front one I'm a tad worried 'cos it lacks feet?

The title made me spit my tea on my keyboard.

The bird in the back is a juvenile, I think, probably from last year. It will acquire those beautiful white feathers down its neck this year.
