    Great Blue Heron, Nest and Hatchling Revisited

    Yesterday I went back to the Great Blue Heron's Nest. I am amazed at how quickly the hatchlings grow. The feathers are longer, the bird stronger... beginning to flap it's wings. C&C welcomed and appreciated. Thank you for viewing.

    They do grow quick. I'm surprised there is only one young one. Up here, the norm is 2 to 5 young. ( Most having 2 or 3)

    Would be great, if you could get some more elevation somehow. (i know it isn't always possible)

    Nice series Joe,

    We don't often see the little 'uns.

    Cheers,
