Part F - Blue Heron Nest

Back to the 2010 Spring Travel Directory

Mom and I try to catch most of the Indian River sunsets.
One day we went down to the river to find a couple of Herons getting ready to mate.

The female is up in the nest and not paying attention to the male standing in the forground.

The male turned his back on the female.

The female started honking and got the males attention.

The male flew up to the nest and landed on top of the female.
This is the picture after the mating. (mekkerfest is a family website)

Mom is sitting in the chair looking up at the nest.
She is missing the sunset!
