Empty Nests – Haiku

These nests are what remain of a blue heron village.  In the Spring each of these nests had young blue herons – pretty much at the same time.  With binoculars, we could watch the progress of life: heads up, feeding, standing on the edge of the nest, hopping to branches, flying, and eventually empty nests.  I was driving by this tree not too long ago, and the nests are what remain.  It seemed like a barren village, with so many unknowns.  In my ignorance, I do not know if they will return to nest, I need to do research, but even looking at the “empty nests” brings wonderful memories.  I only hope that we will be blessed with a new village in the Spring.

  1. I adore herons. In fact, I see a Great Egret that I named King Egret almost every day. He is almost tame in that he doesn’t fly away when I walk by the place he likes to fish on the Texas suburban waterway. He stops fishing and watches me out of the corner of his eye as I walk past.

  2. How fun…I have several pictures from last spring when they were in nest, I will have to post one day…I hope they all return. I could sit and watch the comings and goings for hours…thanks for sharing…and say hello to King Egret for me…
