These photos are a series my husband, Jim Mayfield, put together documenting the arrival, nest building, and raising of the yellow crested night herons that visit our neighborhood each year.  This year we have been lucky enough to have a pair residing right above our garage with easy visual access.  You can watch the progression of nest building as the herons tediously fly back and forth one stick at a time........Turn up the sound... the awesome music is by our friend, musician Dean Billingsley.  Enjoy!

I enjoyed the nature video and the music was great also. We see herons by the river in front of our house and they have very long neck and legs.

I hope that your summer is going well. JB

Hi dear friend,
Oh how I have missed you. This is such a wonderful video and so great of you to share it with us.
I enjoyed watching it very much and visiting here tonight.
I am so far behind with blogging.
Hope all is well honey
