It is beautiful to watch a nesting pair of herons. The male heron flies out to carefully select a stick to bring back and offer to the female to place as they build their nest together. I have to laugh to myself that sometimes the female will reject the stick that was chosen. I actually feel bad for the male when that happens! But he is not deterred and will promptly find another stick.
