GBH Stick Run

A few pairs of Great Blue Herons are hard a work building nests at Ravenswood Pond. This male, identified by behavior as the female almost always stays at the nest to receive and organize the sticks, brought material from all around the pond.

On this trip he headed to the pond edge closest to the nest, which happens to have the walking trail where I was standing.

  1. Funny, I was watching them do the same thing this morning! It’s tempting to just stand in one spot and watch as they go to search for the perfect stick, fly back to the nest, ‘hand’ it over, and then fly out again for more!
