I knew that the path that went by the Heron nesting area would be closed, but decided to go over there and see if I could see any birds on the nests yet. I have a good zoom on my camera and was sure I’d be able to zoom in enough to see. It turns out they are still pretty hard to see, so I had no idea if I managed to get any of them on the nests or not. There was a bit of rain off & on the whole time I was walking, but it was light rain and not too annoying. 🙂
The first Heron I saw was not in the nesting area, but was on a small tree right on one of the walking paths.
A couple of shots of the nesting area – you can see some herons on some of the nests. These were taken using full zoom
The fire alarms were going off in my apartment building this morning. If I had been thinking, I should have headed over to the Heron Reserve much earlier and avoided the noise and having to hang out in the rain in front of the building until the fire department arrived to turn it off. I have no idea if an idiot pulled one of the alarm stations or if it was just an electrical problem that set them off.
