Just to update you on the green herons in the Wetlands, I was able to get a shot showing three nestlings in the first nest (NS1).
Meanwhile, over at NS2 on the other side of the Wetlands…
The young heron in the above photo was in the same tree as NS2 and was being watched very carefully by the adult tending to her two nestlings. The immature bird got within four or five feet of the nest and decided to turn away. I later saw the visiting heron on the opposite side of the tree attempting to fish.
And that’s the latest news from the Wetlands.
