Artist's Description

I was fascinated watching this little blue heron, “walking the tightrope” and gathering sticks for nest building at Lake Martin rookery in St. Martin Parish, Louisiana. At one time the rookery supported 20,000 pairs of nesting wading birds. The numbers declined through the years as the rookery went through natural recycling. Happily, today it is beginning to grow again with about 5000 pairs of waterfowl nesting this spring. It’s a sight to see the primarily pink, blue, and white birds (roseate spoonbills, little blue herons, and great egrets); it truly looks like a nursery.
