Sun, 17 Mar 2019 12:53:00 +0000Little green heron familyDad was finally left by himself with the eggs, mom was on a nearby branch preening.He continued moving sticks around in the nest.There was a near by sound in the bushes that startled him, and me too by the way.His feathers were literally standing up!So he sat himself down to take care of his family. When I checked back in a couple of hours he was still sitting there. Eggs take about 19 days to hatch so guess where I'll be in a few weeks. Let's all send positive vibes to this little family that the eggs aren't taken by some predator.

He struggled with it, flipping it, cleaning off the seaweed, pushing it down his throat only to throw it up again and start the process all over again. We watched him for the longest time, not because this process was so fascinating but because of his neighbor.Who had been CREEPING up closer and closer to this unsuspecting hungry heron. My hope was that the alligator was not as hungry as the heron. Our big decision was to wait and see the horror or throw our hands over our eyes and leave the scene.We stayed. The tension was palpable.The final decision to leave was made by the tricolored heron. He flew away so fast that I missed him! If you look really really closely in the upper right hand corneryou'll see a bit of his wing and feet as he left the scene.As he departed the roseate spoonbill flew in.Joined later by the great egret.We finally left relieved ...
