Heron in a misty pond. The rookery is a short fight away so this is almost certainly a parent fishing for its young in the nest.

Stopped by to check on the heron rookery and watched some nest building and squabbling. I took way too many photos and videos. Don’t worry, I’ll only post the few that are at least okay. The herons are cool to watch!

Mom Said It’s My Turn On The Wing AU
I present to you, Winged Danny Phantom with WING SPIKES, courtesy of the Spur-Winged Lapwing. Wing headcanons under the cut.
Fentons Danny - Spur-winged Lapwing Jazz - Great Blue Heron Maddie - Grey Falcon Jack - Spur-winged Goose
Danny and Jazz take their plumage colouration after their mom but are both water birds after their dad. Danny inherited Jack’s wing spurs which are a super uncommon trait. Jazz easily has the biggest wings in the family and Danny often feels that his are inadequate. Before getting his ghost powers Danny had a hard time flying for any extended period of time. His Dad keeps assuring Danny that his wings will grow with him as he gets older.
Foleys Tucker - Goldfinch  Angela - Goldfinch Maurice - Goldfinch
All the Foleys have Goldfinch wings which is a bit uncommon but not exactly rare. Though since they all have rather small songbird wings they don’t do much flying and Tucker has a pass for flight related gym activities. Every now and then his parents not-so-subtly try to suggest nice Goldfinch girls for Tucker to meet and “get to know”. 
Mansons Sam - Raven Pamela - Crow Jeremy - Blue Jay 
Pamela resents her wings and regularly lightens them so that they’re more of a grey/beige colour. Jeremy is just a regular dude but he really like his wings; his favourite colour is blue. Sam wholeheartedly embraces her wings and is pretty smug that hers are the biggest in her family. She often uses them to cover Danny and Tucker.  
Masters Vlad - Black Swan Dani - Spur-winged Lapwing 
Vlad’s wings invert colour in ghost form just like Dani and Danny’s do. Jack insists on referring to Vlad and himself as “goose buddies”. This is very fucking annoying for Vlad but everyone else finds it hilarious. Vlad can’t fold his wings flat against his back which he finds very annoying. Dani uses here wing spurs to poke people at any given opportunity.
Grays Valerie - Barn Owl Damien - Great Horned Owl
Val and her Dad have both been living up to their reputation of Night Owl these last few years, and honestly, they both secretly prefer it. Damien thinks his wings are pretty average and normal. His height and the size of his wings accidentally intimidates people, even when he tries not to. Valerie has the softest, prettiest wings in school, and they look like they have stars on them, or at least according to Danny.
Miscellaneous Wes - Wood Stork
When you invert Wes’ wings they look suspiciously like Phantom’s...
Lancer - Great Grey Owl
Great big wings that are about as grey as Lancer’s outlook on life but excellent for sheltering several children from falling rubble during a ghost attack. 
Dash - Stellar Sea Eagle Kwan - Harpy Eagle
EAGLE BUDDIES. In this AU Football is played in the air and on the ground like some kind of American Quidditch but still with only one ball. 
Paulina - Scarlet Macaw
People are often distracted by Paulina’s colourful plumage and underestimate her.

Have you ever wondered what the neck of a great blue heron looks like under all the feathers and tissue?
Notice the trachea and esophagus do not follow the same path as the neck vertebrae. Hopefully I answered a question you never had while providing you with even more pressing questions from this image.

banging on the walls of misha collins' handcrafted california home begging him to talk about a fictional gay man while he calmly ignores me to recite the story of the time he saw a great blue heron snatch up and kill a rat in one fell swoop

The magnificent sky reflects a blend of colors on the water at Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge in Maryland. A patient, great blue heron fishes as the sun sets, reminding us that the crepuscular hour is an excellent time to watch for wildlife. With four land trails and over 20,000 acres open for public recreation, the refuge has activities for visitors all year long. Paddling, hiking, fishing or spotting bald eagle nests are just a few reasons people return to this compelling place time and time again. Photo by Zolt Levay (www.sharetheexperience.org).
