In Search Of The Perfect Stick, Heron

When I first found this rookery I was not aware of the lengths some Herons go for that ‘perfect’ stick. I actually found out the hard way.

At the time it never occurred to me they would be up in the branches pulling things apart. I was walking on a trail, all alone, and suddenly things were falling all around me.
