Rumble / Wild WildlifePassing over the tree tops in central Florida, a DJI Mavic Air drone spotted a view rarely seen by ornithologists and bird watchers alike - an occupied Great Blue Heron nest. Great blue herons nest in the tree tops making it difficult for bird watchers to get a great view of their nesting habits as well as the maternal instincts of the females. Here we can see a female who has arrived at a nest and will soon be laying her eggs.

      Thanks! It was my first hand flown orbit around an object so it was a bit choppy.

    Cool footage.There are a lot of those birds around here and have seen footage on the news of trees full of nests. I would love seeing where they nest here.
