feather maintenance

I think I’ve mentioned before that there is a Heron that is often sitting on the railing of the observation deck when I go to the Celery Fields nature area early enough.  It is just sort of staring out at the wetland and stays for quite a while, even if I am walking around taking photos.  A fellow nature lover.

It will go through a lot of contortions to straighten out the feathers and, I suppose, clean up.  I caught him here in a private moment going through his morning routine.
