Christopher Columbus Park, Tucson, AZ
Every spring, there are 3 or 4 pairs of Great Blue Herons that nest in a large Eucalyptus tree at Silverbell Lake in Christopher Columbus Park, Tucson, AZ. The males spend quite a bit of time collecting sticks that they bring back to their nests. This photo was taken near dawn.
