Valentine’s Day Stick
Never underestimate the importance of a good stick in a relationship, especially if you’re a wading bird. Come nesting time, a stick is a prized possession. The female in this picture (the bird in front) was really excited by this particular stick and put on a big show over it. It then instantly went on the nest and was positioned just so. For those of you who recognize or observe Valentine’s Day, I recommend giving a stick this year.
