Spring Nest Building

Category: Nature


Photo and caption by Teresa Long

Great egrets search for just the right sticks to build their nests. The male and female generally do this together. Often you see the male bringing the sticks and the female passes judgement on whether or not they are appropriate for the nest. Great egrets are so graceful and beautiful in flight and I was lucky to capture this one.
