Great Blue Heron rookery 6/28/13

I can’t help but think of Dr Seuss anytime I come across a heron rookery. This one, off of Durham Point Road, has about 10 separate nests in tall snags surrounded by water, and each nest has a brood of 2 to 4 youngsters hunkered down against yesterday’s rain.  It won’t be long before they fledge and disperse into the wider world.
