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…

Home to roost…

The other day, I mistakenly described numerous nests high in the trees as Eagle’s nests. I had seen several Eagles gliding amongst these trees and perched atop these trees. More knowledgeable birders than I, knew these nests were a Heron Rookery. Today, I ventured back out to the area. I could not get any closer, but I had a slightly more powerful lens and I was able to capture a few pics of the Heron as they hunkered down atop the nests and other Heron arrived with what appeared to be food. The quality of the images isn’t great, but you can see the Heron are indeed occupying the nests.
