Passing The Stick, Great Blue Herons

This is part of the ritual. At first the male gathers the stick, then brings it to the female to weave into the nest.

After a few days they will take turns at finding materials. But I think the female does most of the actual nest building.

It’s incredible to watch, and loud. There are lots of ‘croaking’ between the mates.
