A Pair of Nesting Great Blue Herons

This pair of Great Blue Herons have established a nest rookery in a large Live Oak Tree, dripping with Spanish Mosses, next to the Arnold Palmer Legends golf course on Buena Vista Blvd. in The Villages, Florida.

The big wading birds had made a couple of nests there in the tree but only one of the nests could easily be seen from the multi-modal golf-cart path.  Herons like many larger birds, try to create a back-up nest in case of disaster.

Both birds flew across the golf course pond in turn and did a little hunting.  I believe the pair may have eggs in this nest since I did not see any chicks.   I want to wish everyone a happy Easter!  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the picture.  Enjoy!
