Mating Antics-Great Blue Herons
Description: Great Blue Herons-Bill Duels are where a paired male erects its plumage, stands tall, and lunges at the face of its mate with its wings held away from its body and its bill closed. Now, I am not sure because their bills are open. This was only info I could find. I am sure it is part of the mating ritual. (Birds of North America)
