In a recent article I presented a Great Blue landing in this Cypress with an Egret nest nearby. (click here to view)
This is the ‘flip side’ to that. This is that same tree, the Egrets now working the nest with a Great Blue just below them.
In the second image one of those same Herons is guarding their nest site.
The Cypress here is a perfect nest spot. They have learned to ignore each other.
