Great Blue Herons Return!

Since I had seen a group of Great Blue Herons flying by the other day, I thought I'd should go back to the rookery and see if any birds had moved in there yet.  Bingo!  There were several, and some of them were standing in the nests.  

A second Great Blue Heron flew in as I was watching and joined this one at the nest.

Even after the wonderful sea ducks at Deer Island and spring blooms at Mt. Auburn, this brief stop was my favorite part of the day.  I love seeing these birds setting up housekeeping and starting a new season of breeding, nesting and raising their families.  What a treat!
