A Slow Go At A Rookery, Heron

Rain, wind, and cooling temperatures has slowed construction down around here. There are multiple nests, some look complete but Great Blues are not master builders so it’s hard to tell. Single birds are sitting around which could mean eggs. No food delivery from a mate though.

This pair is one of the few still active. The nest, hard to believe, looks finished.

However above is confusing. The bird on the left is giving out a mating call.  If so, just who is that standing there?

The ignored Heron on the right didn’t seem concerned. He just preened and shook his feathers back in order.

Maybe he’s comfortable in his mating ability, or just a room mate. The dynamics here are hard to follow.
