Grey Herons taking over Amsterdam...

Photo: Wild Wonders of Europe/Damschen/
The international online edition of The Guardian has just issued a photo essay on the Grey Herons of Amsterdam.   Photos by Judy Hrudova are featured below.   Grey Herons are native to temperate Europe and Asia, including Holland.   In Holland however, many Grey Herons have forsaken their traditional marshy habitats and made the capital, Amsterdam, their stomping grounds.

Some regular patrons at a particular cafe compete to capture the most herons in one photo.   The current record is 29.   In the photo immediately above, there are at least eight Grey Herons in the shot.

Please comment if you wish.
