Heron Convention?

When I woke up for the second time this morning, it was because there was a flock of gulls making a bit of a racket outside. I'm not sure if there was a school of fish in the cove or what, but there was a huge flock of gulls all hoving over one small area. After having my eyes finally adjust to having just woken up, I noticed a large number of heron or egrets on the shore, too. I've never seen this many all in one place. How many can you spot in this picture? It might help to click on it for a larger view.

sorry I made 5 comments. I didn't think they went through.

Whoops! They didn't go through. I see 23 herons.

I love the lighting in this picture. It reminds me of a painting.

Hmmm Beth.... I only see 22 herons. I'll have to check the high resolution version of the picture to see if I can spot a 23rd one. Thanks for counting!
