Wild Bird Wednesday


More shots taken at the State Park.  This is the Great Blue Heron in flight ...


I assume he got to where he was going, though , for some reason I failed to catch him landing (I don't remember why, but I assume I was distracted by something or someone :)  These birds are magnificent.  We used to have a rookery on one of the channels, but it was blown down in a storm two summers ago and I haven't been able to locate where they are nesting now.   The rookeries are fun ... there are Herons, Egrets and cormorants all nesting in the tops of a group of tree.  I do hope I am able to find the new one.  Have a wonderful WBW everyone ...

  11. There are a few spots where they gather, from Grayslake to Grass Lake to Nippersink Lake. As things disturb them, they mive or adjust. I hope they come back to some old ones.
