The boys are back in town.
Male Great Blue Herons are in the rookery claiming the best nesting spots.
There’s lots of changing places, some fighting, and even early repairs to last years old branches.
One of the islands has plenty of red leaves and big trees. The Herons were flying around, over, and through making great shots, if you were in the right spot.
I missed more than a few, I’m rusty, and need to get more practice.
Colors are now a combination of a few fall reds, browns, and the greens of Palmettos.
Activity will pickup and continue on through summer. There will always be quiet times, but I even saw the first female tormenting / fighting a male at a nest.
