GBH doing the Funky Chicken...well, not really.

This juvenile great blue was sunning the underside of its wings. In order to keep from overheating while it soaked up the rays, this bird was doing a little gular fluttering (sort of vibrating its neck pouch) with its beak open. The whole process looked a little strange, but it helps to keep the bird healthy.

We had to laugh at this particular bird -- its voice hadn't changed yet so it had a sort of high pitched squawk.
