On guard, fishing, preening, near the nest

On guard, fishing, preening, near the nest

May 28th. Still one and the other of the West Park nesting herons spending its time on a convenient perch to guard the nearby nest, occasionally preening. The other bird nearby in a position where the fishing was better. The few minutes I was there neither bird actually returned to the nest.

Nothing actually visible over the rim of the nest, but the adult pair still acting like there was something worth protecting there.
