Flying Great Blue Heron

It’s not easy building a Blue Heron nest. I watched a male  gathering sticks for the female. These photos point out a flaw in their method.

The shot above shows a trip back to the nest, with a single long thin stick.

The one above much the same. A scrawny little stick. Later on a male landed right above me (too close to photograph) and snapped off a stick. One long stick.

I did see one take a few in a single trip. However, he dropped most before he made it back. So….  it’s not easy building a Blue Heron nest.
