I guess birds are a lot like people -- everyone finds something that they are really into. This Black-Crowned Night Heron is going back to make another late summer nest. He (she?) kept flying off to some trees behind me and coming back about every five minutes with big branches like this one. I guess one of the advantage of building a nest (again) in late summer is there are more branches laying on the ground.
I have it on my to do list to head back to Audubon Parks' Oschner Island rookery soon to see what the young chicks look like. There should be a lot of food around to feed them.
