Default Green Heron Nest

Not much change since last weeks post. Still four eggs in good shape, should be hatching in two to three weeks. I added vertical shot to show relationship of nest to water the tree is overhanging. The tree is at the base of a steep bank so the nest is below where I am shooting from. The Tri-colored heron landed in the top of the tree while I was photographing the nest.

Great looking Tri-Coloured Heron - never heard of or seen one of them before.

Nice job on that first shot. Also I find it funny to see that last one in the tree. I've never seen a Heron in a tree before.

Nicely done.

They land on trees all the time here, as with this Great Blue on top of a Cypress tree.
