Great Blue Heron
Why haven’t aliens visited our solar system?
They checked the reviews and we only have one star.
Interesting Fact: Nest building can take from 3 days up to 2 weeks; the finished nest can range from a simple platform measuring 20 inches across to more elaborate structures used over multiple years, reaching 4 feet across and nearly 3.5 feet deep. Ground-nesting herons use vegetation such as salt grass to form the nest. ( https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Great_Blue_Heron/lifehistory )
Beautiful shot! May I steal that pun? 😀
Thank you very much and yes you may. Happy Blogging! 🙂
I have a special love for Blue Herons. One frequently visits the duck pond by my (late) mother’s House. I always feel blessed to see him at those times. I was kayaking on our reservoir once, in a favorite, secluded place where I pass by a rock wall covered in Swallow’s mud nests when a Blue Heton glided right over me to what looked like his home in the taller cliff ahead. I always hope to see him there again.
I am sure you will. Thank you very much for stopping by and and sharing your amazing memories. Happy Blogging! 🙂
