There are a few Great Blue nesting trees that face the swamp edge. It’s a favorite spot for nest materials (except Moss, which is right over my head here).
This guy was sent out several times in a row for more sticks.
While not the best spot for big branches, small twigs to keep the female happy are easy here.
We picked a spot where there are two cinder blocks that make a seat to just sit and keep shooting. The small blocks have been there for years and we keep them ‘tidy’ to use each spring.
Eventually the Heron gets lost in the thick reeds, but he does come flying out…with luck where we expected him.
