Heron Rookery In Nearby Wetlands

Nature at work before our eyes.  Herons in their rookery.

Life is full of surprises...
It turns out that Harry and Henrietta Heron are more than just a couple, but one couple among many in the wetlands not far from our home.  We had no idea their numbers were so great. 

What a fine spring sight to see these often solo fliers tending and repairing their nests high in the scraggly alder treetops.

We are eager for the a wild celebration in the pond below once these babies emerge and learn about their world.  

A mother's is a long way down!
