Juvenile Green Herons

These photographs and several published earlier were all taken in Charleston, right in the city. We were told of a park near the shore that had a large pond, trees, and many birds.

I found the expected ducks, but noticed small herons all along the waters edge. It turns out the trees here have become a Green Heron rookery.

It makes sense too. Charleston is surrounded by marsh and swamp lands. Natural rookeries. However this place is close to food yet minimal predators.

These young birds were still not found of people, but when they wanted to get away they just faded into the thick trees. A win for me and the birds.
