Let the courtships begin…!

Exciting news!! They have arrived!  The Great Blue Herons are coming back and are beginning to settle in at the wetlands rookery.image

Today was the first time this fall that I saw them ‘displaying’, as in this arched neck posture, and jockeying for the best nesting sites on the tree island.

They looked just magical in the late afternoon light!

    • I agree, they are incredible, and this is just the beginning….! Looking very much forward to all of our wetland birds arriving back to court and nest here over the next few months. The changes in their colors are amazing to see.
