Subject: [SFBirds] Great Blue Heron drama at Pier 94 restoration area (13 Sep)
Hi all,

I was a bit shocked to witness an adult Great Blue Heron attacking and seriously injuring a second heron (also a Great Blue, possibly a young bird) this morning at the Pier 94 restoration area. Perhaps a bird defending it's foraging territory? By the time I left, the injured bird seemed to be nearly dead and was still being intermittently attacked by the adult. More gory details (not for the faint of heart!) and photos in my eBird checklist here:

Good birding,
