Great Blue Heron

Great Blue Heron in Profile

This nest didn’t require as much updating to get ready for this years’ nesting season. It’s position in the V of solid tree branches may have helped it survive the summer and fall storms with more of its bulk intact.  It’s always surprising how flimsy some of the successful nests look.

This was one of the first nests with serious Great Blue Heron activity a few weeks ago and now there is just a lot of waiting.
