There are some birds that just need to be photographed. To me she is one of them. There is a male that visits, but never for long. Most times she sits in this half nest by herself. She is absolutely beautiful and ignores any chaos around the swamp.
Actually, that’s a lie now that I see this. Today she beat the ___ out of a cormorant that landed in her tree ! So, most times she is above it all, but don’t mess with her tree.
