Great Blue Heron couple nesting (picture 6). The male would fly away from the nesting tree to go fetch branches with leaves on the other side of the road where I was standing. The male would fly over my head, land on a tree, break off a branch with his bill (picture 4 and 5), then fly back to the nest carrying the branch (picture 1 and 2). He would then pass the branch to the female (picture 3) who was on the nest and who would keep building the nest.
Spotted at a heronry of approximately 15-20 nests over a creek.
