Great Blue Heron on Nest

Great Blue Heron Nests

I take more photographs of the Great Blue Heron nests in trees with little protection because you can see what is going on, but many of the pairs put their nests in more secluded spots. These nests are much higher off the ground and have more branches impeding the view.

When the eggs hatch the chicks will be evident from their chirping, not because they are visible from the pathway. It is likely that by the time the young are tall enough to be seen leaves on the trees will obstruct them from view.

    1. They are, Jane, and thank you! The GBH chicks here are just starting to stand up enough so that you can really see them. I’ve seen photos of a nest that has four chicks! Hopefully the parents will be able to keep them fed.
