A great blue heron takes flight while nesting in trees with other adults and babies near Wausaukee Road and Donges Bay Road in Germantown on Thursday, June 10, 2021. Great blue herons, which nest in large groups known as rookeries, are sometimes mistaken for a crane in flight. But these birds fly with their necks tucked closer to their body, while sandhill cranes fly with their necks outstretched. - Photo by Mike De Sisti / Milwaukee Journal Sentinel via USA TODAY NETWORK ORG XMIT: DBY1
