Doesn't play well with others

Doesn't Play Well with Others
Great Blue Herons are fairly solitary creatures in general -- and don't seem to have much use for ducks in particular. This one was so scrunched up against the cold this morning that it looked more scruffy than majestic, as herons do when standing tall. The nice thing about the unseasonably cold weather we've been having is that it has really cleared out Wingra Park, and with few people around, a greater variety of birds has been visiting the shoreline.
