Taken at Elizabeth Park, Hartford, CT several years ago. Used Canon 7D, F9, 1/640 sec., ISO 1000, at 105mm
While not the stereotypical “stately” view of a GBH, this is most certainly a study in typical behavior. They scratch so much I have to wonder about bird mites. We have one that hangs out on the seawall 10’ outside our dining room window here in Florida and you have nicely illustrated typical behavior. Great job on the exposure with the light coming from a challenging angle, too.
Great pose with a really nice background, Patricia. It’s interesting how much green the white “chin” picked up from the grass
