Great Blue Heron Rookery
We heard of an eagles’ nest site in the west county area and on Saturday we packed up our gear and headed out. We didn’t find the eagles in the nest, just Great Blue Herons. Dozens of them in the eagle nest’s tree, a pair on what we believe is the eagle’s nest and many nests in surrounding trees. I had just mentioned to my husband last week that I’d like to see a Great Blue Heron rookery so this was a welcomed surprise. But I wonder about the eagles. I assumed that for some reason they didn’t use that nest this year or abandoned it. A lady stopped when we were peering through our binoculars and told us she saw the eagles the day before, Friday so we were confident we were in the right area. I’m not sure what is going on with them but I got to see the rookery, which was fascinating.
