While visiting the Bailey Tract this week, I noticed several Green Herons - and it was by chance that I found this pair.
|If there had been no movements, I would have missed them all together.|
|It was fun to watch them - the male would fly off to a nearby tree and choose a twig which he broke off and brought back to the nest.|
|He lowered the twig to his lady, she would grab it with her bill and carefully arrange it in her nest.|
|This was a full time job .... off he goes to get some more.|
|The tree next door on the other hand had a family almost all grown up...|
|Two immature Green Herons were practicing their hopping between branches while patiently waiting for the parent to come with a meal.|
|Now, that is one good looking fellow.|
