Great Blue Herons: Nesting Season Has Begun

Great Blue Herons have started working on nests around the pond. The best spots go early, and there were some remnants left of last season’s nest where this GBH had staked a claim.

This fellow’s “nestoration” skills are a bit rusty and he spent considerable time trying to pull live branches off the tree. The ground around the pond is littered with twigs of all sizes and shapes that would have been easier to gather.

    1. Just a bit earlier than last year when I look back, although it seems early. Thank you very much, Belinda, and I hope to see and share some interesting action this season.
