Of all the herons I have seen, the great blue heron seems most prone to defending a large territory.  The upper heron claimed an area encompassing most of the river in front of the location where I often film.  Both shores.  It had to meet all challenges or risk losing the entire hunting grounds.  Snowy egrets and tricolor herons seem to have a territory not much larger than personal space while, with the great egrets I have seen, territory doesn't seem to be an issue at all.
