Drove by my local Heron Rookery today. To my surprise there were about 8-10 Great Blue Herons standing on the nests.  There are about 25-30 nests total.

The one thing strange thing that I did notice was that all of the Herons were in the same tree, and this tree has the original nests. The nests are in what appears to be approximately 5 different sycamore trees on a very small creek.

As of 3-12 there were not any Herons on the nests.
Other than the 8-10 on the nests I have yet to see any Grat Blue Herons around any ponds yet this year.
