The Great Blue Herons are still very busy courting and getting ready to start their new families together.
“Sometimes I wonder where my partner has flown off to. . . . When will he finally get back here with some more good sturdy sticks . . . !”
Off to work – Looking quite business-like as he struts off to search for just the right nest-building materials.
Not quite as simple as heading to Home Depot and picking items off the shelf, though. Sometimes, that really ‘perfect’ little branch he finds back in the woods is pretty hard to extricate from the rest of the tree!
Worth all the effort…! Finally, he manages to yank free his chosen stick and flies back to the nest, only to head out again in a few minutes for more.
