Heron Brood Grows Daily

When the local Heron chicks first hatched it was thought that there were only 2.  However, only a few days later at least 3 chicks could be discerned in the nest.  Several days later and with a remote camera in place there were obviously 4 chicks in the nest.  As far as it is know there have never been breeding Herons in this particular area, and Herons are known to usually breed in colonies called Heronries.  This could just be the beginning - maybe next year there will be several Herons attempting to nest.
