Green Herons

Green herons nest either in small groups or as a single pair. In Mississippi, the nests were often found in willow trees or other trees near to the pond or body of water. This species was found across the state if the habitat was suitable.

This species is easy to cite as probable since the herons are usually seen in pairs. Confirmation comes when the young are found or the herons reveal the location of the nest.
