The Great Blue Herons are nesting. More difficult to locate than the Osprey nests which are so clearly visible on their platforms, the Great Blue Herons nest off the ground in stick nests they build in trees. I have been following the activities of a pair on a webcam at Cornell’s Sapsucker Woods Pond. The drama of the courtship, nest building, egg laying (they have five eggs) and fending off Great Horned Owl attacks are readily viewable on your computer. There is a moderator who answers questions on the chat feature.
Here is the link, I hope you enjoy and learn as much as I have!
