Sun setting over Whakatane River.
About 5 pm yesterday on the Whakatane River. A Shag dries his wings. They have to do this periodically as they have no waterproofing due to the fact they spend all their feeding time under the water chasing fish.A white-faced Heron is on alert. It is watching an approaching Hawk.
I'm not sure a Hawk would attack a full-grown Heron but I do know that Herons really don't like hawks so this one was off!
