HERON LOOKOUT | June 19, 2013

The first herons from the May group of re-nesters have just hatched this week, with soft sounds of young nestlings audible when the adult isn’t brooding them to keep them warm.

Listen for the rest of the nests to hatch. There are several nests of older nestlings from the original six nests, with the oldest one expected to fledge within the next week or two.

If all goes well, the re-nesters will begin to fledge by mid-August.
