The Great Blue Heron Nesting Now

May 21, 2010

“Spring – an experience in immortality.”
~ Henry David Thoreau

Great blue herons are now nesting in rookeries around the Great Lakes and may be seen in the wetlands among the cat tails where they build nests and rear their young.

A great blue heron’s loud voice sounds like a duck with a sore throat.

In flight, their wide wingspan gives them a majestic appearance.  A very elegant fowl.
