Black Creek Park • April 13


Great Blue Heron. The herons on are on their nests now! This nest is part of nesting colony consisting of half a dozen or more nests.

Great Blue Heron. This bird is keeping an eye on me, but I can quite assure you that this nest is completely inaccessible, both in terms of height and distance through completely impassible terrain.

American Tree Sparrow. This is probably a farewell picture of this overwintering species. They will be departing soon (if not already) for the upper reaches of Canada where they will breed.
