One of the Great Blue Heron chicks in the process of swallowing a fish.

These Herons are only about two weeks old and already they are eating whole food.

But it will be another 4 to 6 weeks before they leave the nest to hunt food on their own.

In the meantime, mom and dad will have to really hustle to feed the chicks as they become bigger and bigger.
