I arrived at this Great Blue Heron nest just as the male was delivering a long stick for the nest. The female went to work.
But the stick was wedged in place.
She thought about it while her mate wisely looked the other way.
She pulled but that stick did not give.
GBH have short attention spans: she went back to prodding the sticks already in place and a few moments later he flew off for another bit of nest material.
