Heron Rookery amongst the trees…

Every Fall, the nests for the large birds are quite evident once the leaves fall. This on Sauvie Island NW of Portland, Oregon.

‘Hello, I’m Harvey’

‘Hey, I’m Sybil’   The Blue Heron have started to pair up, high in the rookery trees. I have yet to find an accessible spot closer to the action. But, I will try…

Heron (Eagle’s) Nests….

I came upon this view of multiple nests high in the trees. The foliage has not yet fully evolved, so the nests were quite visible against the bright, grey sky. Also, visible were a few Eagles landing into the nests. I couldn’t get close (maybe a couple hundred yards) and I did not have the right lens. But, I snapped a few shots to show the scope of Eagle’s Heron’s nests. I do hope to return with a more powerful lens and find a way to be closer to the trees.  (Update: Comments suggest these are Heron nests as Eagles would not nest so close together….the Eagles in the trees might have been visiting the Heron habitat? That bottom pic does have the look of a Heron. This is what happens when a novice puts a few observation together…still fun)
