Great Blue Heron Ritual

I was lucky enough to observe a strange Great Blue Heron (GBH) ritual. Here is what I saw. One GBH with a large stick in his beak flew to another GBH who then slowly stretched her head and neck all the way up and even more slowly shrank back down until I could not see any neck. I witnessed this multiple times as there were many pairs of heron is the grove of trees near Rockport, TX. One of these days I will improve my video skills so I can share a video instead of a bunch of still shots.
