Great Blue Herons
Photographer: Stephanie Shipkowski
Location: Trevor Zoo, Millbrook, NY
Story: 
The enclosure for the white-naped cranes at the Trevor Zoo at Millbrook School was open to the air. The cranes seemed fine with the wild great blue herons who stopped by -- but the herons weren’t necessarily willing to get along with each other! One of the herons retreated off the beach while a (captive) Canadian goose and Egyptian goose observed the situation from the shade.
