Roving Reporter | "Beautiful Egret in Oak Tree" by Jane Willard

It is nesting time again for birds of all kinds. Particularly visible and most fascinating to observe are herons and egrets. They build their nests in very high and most precarious locations. This magnificent male is perched near his mate's nest atop one of the windswept oaks near Little Bay. He gathers materials for, and she builds the nest. Great Blue Herons do the same. Observing this activity over a period of a few months is fascinating and a great lesson -- no matter the hazards and trials they face due to weather, winds, rains, finding just the right sized twigs and sticks, etc., sometimes losing a nest and even eggs, they never give up their efforts to survive and re-create. (Images Courtesy of Jane Willard)
