Great Blue Heron Laying on Nest

GBH: Nest Duty

This Great Blue Heron was snoozing on the nest when I came along. I was happy to see that the tree is showing some life with some green needles appearing.

At one point the heron got up, stretched and ruffled himself.

When he settled back down he took a long time adjusting from side to side making me think the eggs might have hatched.

The Great Blue was keenly aware of the Great Egret encroaching on his territory. This tree, like past years, has several Great Egret nests and some of the Great Egrets aren’t paired up yet and are searching for nesting spots.
