After seeing the heron in the nest a couple of weeks ago, they went AWOL until this weekend. This morning, they were preening away when I arrived.
Then the male was sent off for additional building materials to complete the nest upgrade from last year.
Of course what he selected and what she had in mind required considerable discussion and viewing from many diffent angles.
Finally she agreed that it would work.
I'll keep you posted on the herons along with the osprey and great horned owl nests which are all within a couple hundred yards of each other.
