The “Skinny Tree” still stands and this breeding season a Great Blue Heron pair is raising a family here. Three chicks hatched and two have succumbed.
Somehow, the GBH on the nest knew the mate was about to land.
The Great Blues give each other the showiest greetings when one returns.
All that taken care of, it’s time to feed junior.

Awesome nest pictures, the one you used as a banner on top is my favorite.
Thanks, Rudi, glad that you liked them. Their greeting behaviors are so interesting to watch.
I do like the sentry shot 😊
Belinda, I am seeing this comment! I’m amazed at how far off the mate must be when they start that position, and even with all that warning I missed the landing 😆.
