Backyard Birds

Imagine standing in your backyard and seeing this in the near distance high up in a cottonwood tree, a mother heron with her three young children. I was standing (quite a distance away) in the street in front of the house when an occupant came out. I told her she was lucky to have them there - she said "No, they squawk a lot". Maybe it's because I adore blue herons, but I love when they 'squawk'. It's wild and raw! And look how cute those youngins' are.
