Great Blue Heron Rookery

Ardea herodias


Great Blue Heron Rookery that contains about 14 nests.


A foodplain that was once a large beaver pond. The dam was breached about two years ago, but the herons still return every year.


The last two photos are of older fledgelings on two different nests. They were not present two weeks later.
