Heron Still Fetching Sticks

These photographs are actually 2 different birds, however they were both on ‘stick fetch duty’.

I think this part of breeding season should be coming to an end. Several females are down on eggs.

Until everyone is settled in this will be the daily chore. Next is food, constant fishing and hunting.

    1. Thank you. It’s tough to say, the person who maintains the swamp area has seen new nests being built away from the main area. I would say the big island has 5-6 Herons, Anhingas building everywhere, 2 smaller islands have 1 each, another down the water has 1, last big island maybe 3 so…13-17 heron nests.

      Anhingas seem to build right under a heron, out of snapping beak range. Great Egrets and smaller wading birds are 2 months out. But the other rookery, down a trail, had about 10 Little Blues last June.

      Busy swamps, and busy photographer’s.

  1. Excellent photographs ! Ted, I like your work so much that I keep looking for new ones every day. The great blue heron looks so beautiful with the wings spread. The orange beak contrasts so well with the color of the body.
