Hello, Happy Monday!
We have had some crazy weather lately, one day it was beautiful and in the 70's. Then the temps dropped back down to the 40's and 20's at night. I was able to snap some photos from our deck or the dining room window of the Great Blue Herons. I see them often walking on the tree branches trying to break off pieces to take back to their nest. As far as I can tell there may be 8 heron's nest, maybe more in the neighboring trees.
I took this Great Blue Heron photo from my dining room window.
One day we took a walk on our local fire road, The Pileated Woodpecker did a number of holes in a tree near the trail, you can make out a small bit of lake from the fire road. There are some daffodils growing the woods across from our driveway and the heron's nest can be seen from the fire road.
This is just a 1.1 mile round trip walk from our house to this spot on the fire road.
The Great Blue Heron seen breaking off branches for it's nest.
Here is a Great Blue Heron flying back to the nest, if you look closely you can see a heron sitting on the nest far bottom middle part of the photo.
I've been hearing the Pine Warbler in the forest next to our house, this male Pine Warbler visits my feeders often. The Pine Warbler is a breeder in the forest next to our home.
Thanks for your visit today! I hope you enjoyed my post and photos.
