Last week Adam reminded me that it was time to check on our night herons that nest in the creek over by the McCormick building. Renee and I walked over this morning and got to see the male fly in with a new stick for the nest. The female was repeatedly displaying to him. Her crest is lifted up too but she kept conveniently hiding it behind a mangrove leaf.

I'll keep an eye on these two and will check for other nests too. Last year there were 4-5 nests in the little creek (not Henderson) between HQ and the buildings next door. Nesting looks like it is just starting since a lot of my photos from past years start in the middle of April.
