Just another WordPress.com weblog about Nature and Wildlife

The Great Blue Herons in our nearby park have had chicks hatch!  I was really thrilled to see the little chicks raise their fuzzy heads up out of the stick nest, so I could take some pictures.  There were three chicks in one of the nests and two in the other.  Both nests are very close to the Koi fish pond and gazebo.

I have taken pictures of the adult Great Blue Herons here before and have shared the photographs on this blog.  The parent birds are likely the same herons who were chicks last year.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!

  1. oh, so silly and cute!!!

  2. Hello on a gorgeous, spring day in TENNESSEE. Wow—after the long and bitter winter we had this year, Spring is even more inviting and lovely.

    Great photos of the Herons… You do see many gorgeous birds down there.

    We are now home ‘again’ –after our 5th trip since the end of February…. Seems as if we visited five different states –although the trips weren’t planned for that reason… ha… BUT–as I always say, it’s great to be home… I did publish a blog post today–so check it out when you have time. Have a wonderful weekend.

    Hugs,
    Betsy

  3. Very cool to see the chick already!! Our herons are a little behind here. Great shots!

    • Hi Eileen, Many thanks! Well, it is warmer here in Florida so yes, our birds are nesting earlier in the year. So happy you also have a rookery where you can see the Great Blue Herons. Have a super weekend!

  4. How great to see and be able to photograph the little ones! What a treat!
