A Photo Essay
This Great Blue Heron nest is on private property. We were allowed to walk into their field a short distance. I was too far away from the tree for quality photos, but they tell a story! It is nice this tree is secluded.
I hope you enjoy their story.

What a beautiful bird!
The Great Blue Heron is a gorgeous bird. Seeing over ten in one place was awesome.
I love your story!
Hi Gay! Wonderful to hear from you. Thanks! Can you believe we are under a two day winter warning advisory. ;-(
Yes, I loved your story and the photos! It’s always fun to see the birds building their nests. I’ve never seen that many blue herons together before.
Hi Beth! Wonderful to hear from you as well! Years ago my birding mentor and I would go out to “the heron tree”, which was a different tree back the, there would be so many herons. Much more that the 10 or so in this tree. But, seeing these Great Blues was so much fun!!!
My favourite birds, Sheila. Great to see so many of them in that tree. 🙂
Don’t you just love the herons. So elegant in flight and in their mating rituals. Always a joy to hear from you Sylvia!!
