The great backyard bird watch happened in February. So, I decided to go and make some photographs at a Heron Rookery that I had been watching for a while.
Herons always seem to be such solitary birds, that seeing them all nesting together was a little unusual. though it is typical behavior for them. I just didnt know!
Any way it was really fun. The nests are on the edge of a highway and I thought I was going to have one nest to look at, but as I was looking I could not complete counting the nests and such. The birds are adept at disguising themselves, so it was always a surprise to find another one peeking out.
So, there are at least 5 nests in this photo, can you spot them?
the birds are really so dramatic that I thought I'd share what photos I was able to capture.
this one is feeding and checking the nest.
