Information available in the ornithological literature about breeding biology of the Great Blue Heron (Ardea herodius) and the Common Egret (Casmerodius albus) is fragmentary at best. Breeding behavior preceding and during pair formation of the Great Blue Heron has been described by Bent (1926), Cottrille and Cottrille (1958), and Meyerriecks (1960). Miller (1943) comments on some aspects of breeding biology of the Great Blue Heron in the Philadelphia region but his data suffer from lack of quantification.
