Hello fellow birders,
I took my sister to the rookery yesterday eve around 7. The skies were alive with birds, some of them young little blues and, slightly before sunset, a half dozen little blue chicks walked their way to the top of their tree and stood nicely while we photographed. A black-crowned night heron adult sat perched on a roof peak for the hour that we were there. See pics on eBird:
The trees that were felled have been cleaned up. I saw no evidence of any more cutting. Again, most of the noise was coming from the begging chicks……
Several other birders and a family came to check it out as well.
My best to you all,
