The Rookery at Dallas TX

This bird still doesn't have a mate, I named her Annie. She has been trying to stack twigs each time I have observed her. After she dropped the twig, she started a routine where she would preen her body feathers and then with its beak grab a small attached twig or limb and lean down to it and causing the throat canal to viborate. This went on for six or eight cycles, Annie would then stretch her neck to the sky.

The Rookery in Dallas

Nestled in between the helter and the
skelter of our every day world there is
another one of life's struggles taking place.
Herons, Egrets and other species of
birds call this place home.

I know that I am supposed to catch the head on view.
There was enough geometry in this view of the bird
bringing in nest building materials, that I thought
it was worth posting
