Small, Medium, Large GBH Chicks

Another pair of Great Blue Heron chicks have hatched so I now have three sets of young I can photograph. Look close near the trunk of the tree to see a little fuzz top chick. There is a second one in this nest but they didn’t both pop up at the same time.

The middle sized set are a trio, about a month old.  The adults now leave them on their own for hours at a time. Their nest looks pretty small from my vantage point for all that activity.

The oldest pair, about six weeks old, have been featured in some of my other posts. They still rest a lot when the adults are away but keep a keen eye on the Great Egrets on the next branch.
