Great Blue Heron
Why did the policeman smell bad?
He was on duty.
Interesting Fact: Great Blue Herons nest mainly in trees, but will also nest on the ground, on bushes, in mangroves, and on structures such as duck blinds, channel markers, or artificial nest platforms. Males arrive at the colony and settle on nest sites; from there, they court passing females. Colonies can consist of 500 or more individual nests, with multiple nests per tree built 100 or more feet off the ground. ( https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Great_Blue_Heron/lifehistory )
Thank you very much, I am really glad that you enjoyed it. Happy Blogging! 🙂
Great shot of Heron. It took me a second look to see the second Heron in the picture.
I came across this nesting ground this past weekend. I have to go back there to get some better shots since now I know where they are nesting. So you will be seeing more Herons in the next few weeks. Thank you very much for stopping by and sharing your thoughts. Happy Blogging! 🙂
I look forward to seeing the next round of Heron Pics. 😉
