Species: Black Crowned Night Heron | Location: Ephrata, PA, United States
At this rookery, the black-crowned night herons were busy building their nest getting ready for the little ones to arrive. They were flying around getting twigs and taking them to the female for her to place them in the nest. This one was flying back to the nest without a twig. I had to laugh because when he went back she gave him an earful.

About The Photographer
I have done photography for 40 years, off and on. I never really combined my love of nature and my love of photography until a number of years ago. The last 6 years I got more serious about it and have become addicted to bird photography. But I love all nature and will attempt to take a picture of anything I come across. I became disabled 12 years ago and photography helped me to stop feeling sorry for myself and stop looking at all I can not do, and go do what I still can do. Living on disability makes travel and buying equipment hard to do. But I am blessed beyond my means with the equipment I have, thanks to some very generous people.
