Heron Rookery

Yesterday my father, brothers, and I visited a neighbor’s farm to buy a bull. A few years ago, for the same reason on the way home my father discovered a Great-blue heron rookery just down the road from the farm with the bulls.

Yesterday, after picking up our new bull, we stopped off at the rookery and at first we couldn’t see the nests. But after scanning the trees Dad saw them first. The rookery has about a dozen nests, I would have liked to get closer to them, but the river was in the way. Here are pictures of the nests, and in some you can the herons.

Here are a few nests very high up in the trees,

If you look closely you can see a bird in this nest (the to of the head toward the back),
