Great Blue Heron Couple Builds Nest

Great Blue Heron Couple Builds Nest in Marion, MA

Turtle Journal found a great blue heron rookery (heronry) in Marion on the South Coast of Massachusetts just as the birds had arrived and nest building had begun.  This pair of great blues chose a tall dead white pine tree at the edge of a fresh water pond.  The male heron fetched building material (branches, twigs and so on), and then brought them to the female heron who remained on the tree and who emplaced them meticulously, one by one, into the emerging nest.
