The male may then present the female with a stick for the nest, a domestic gesture that symbolizes his acceptance of her as his mate. The female uses this stick to begin a new nest, or add to an old one….The male continues to bring nesting materials to the female until the nest is complete. Read more, click here.

  2. Amy, marvelous captures of eloquent progeny of Mother Nature. Especially enjoyed the lines of the third egret; it’s flight is lovely in form and shape. We had a march in my small college town that was hundreds deep. We must continue the momentum to insure human rights and to protect the health of the planet.
