Great Egret Nest Conflict

Great Egret Nest Conflict

These juveniles are ready to leave the nest but they don't yet know it. Conflict has been a way of life for them since they hatched, yet all 3 have managed to survive. In a few more days they'll just be rivals rather than rivals and siblings. Photographed in Maurepas Swamp, Louisiana
