Description

While observing the heron rookery for several weeks, I noticed the herons sitting with their wings out, they appear to be shielding the little ones from the sun. I also noticed another interesting behavior, the nests are very close together, and I watch one heron steal sticks from the herons nest above her and tuck them into her own nest.
