Close To Home, Great Blue Heron

This happens every year. Young Heron fledge, fly off, and come back. Usually it’s the young ones from the far island of this rookery. I have watched it before.

They will hunt along the waters edge where there is a supply of (almost) easy food.

They can see, and fly to, the old nests. Once in a while they do. It’s a comfort thing.

Now they will expand their territory, slowly going further away.

Many will come back next February and look around to make their own nests.
